Homicides of patients in hospitals and nursing homes: a comparative analysis of case series.

During the last few years homicides1of patients committed by staff of the caring

profession have hit the headlines on several occasions. According to reports from the United

States, the Netherlands, Norway, and Austria, crimes like these are obviously no isolated

events. In July 1998, the French nurse Christine Male`vre confessed to having killed 30 sick

people in the hospital where she was working at. In her bookMes Aveux, she only admits

three murders (Male`vre, 1999, p. 223).
