Daniela Poggiali

Italian Nurse, Daniela Poggali, 42

One of the early cases I worked was that of nurse Dana Sue Gray who killed several patients while under the influence of the SSRI antidepressant, Paxil. This has kept me alert to other cases of nurses killing patients. She became a serial killer – something considered rare at the time for women. But antidepressants have certainly changed that statistic! Here is more on her case from our database:

So this new case out of Italy makes me wonder, especially when knowing how many medical personnel are on antidepressants coupled with hearing reports of her personality mentioned below ….. it sounds like someone having serious toxic reactions to an antidepressant with the rage and uncaring and mean spirited attitude…..

Daniela Poggiali was arrested by officers in Lugo, northern Italy, after the unexpected death of a 78-year-old patient who was admitted with a routine illness.

Today they revealed they had widened their inquiry to include 38 deaths, including ten which have been described as ‘very suspicious’.

One report by the Central European news agency said she was accused of giving her patients high doses of potassium because she found them or their families annoying…..

He added Poggiali was ‘unperturbed’ when she was arrested in the last few days.
In local reports, one nurse who worked with Poggiali described her as a ‘cold person but always eager to work’.

Another claimed Poggiali, who is being held on a murder charge, had once given powerful laxatives to patients towards the end of her shift to ’embarrass’ colleagues working on the shift after her.
