A Japanese nurse was accused of tampering with intravenous drip bags at the hospital where she worked. A Japanese nurse is accused of tampering with the medical devices of dozens of near-death patients in order to kill them while she was off duty — all so she could avoid delivering the news to the patients' grieving families.

Ayumi Kuboki, 31, was arrested Saturday in connection with the death of Sozo Nishikawa, 88, who was poisoned in 2016 at the Oguchi Hospital in Yokohama, the Japan Times reported.

Kuboki told investigators she did not like the responsibility of telling a patient’s family a loved one had passed away. She allegedly targeted patients who were close to death by tampering with their intravenous drips so another nurse on duty would have to inform the person’s family of their death.

Nurse convicted of murders killed 90 patients, say German police – video. At least 90 people were killed at the hands of a German nurse who injected patients with cardiovascular medication in order to show off his resuscitation skills, a three-year police investigation has found.

Four of the 20 people believed to have been poisoned at the hospital died. "We are aware Greater Manchester Police have arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of tampering with prescription charts," Chris Burke, head of the Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, said in a statement.

Doctors said Nishikawa died of natural causes, but Kuboki would later admit to injecting Nishikawa’s intravenous drip bag with a disinfectant, The Guardian reported. She reportedly admitted to poisoning Nobuo Yamaki, 88, who was a patient on the same floor as Nishikawa. She's accused of killing another 20 patients in a similar way.

Some 48 patients died at the hospital from “unusual circumstances” during a three-month span in 2016, including five people in one day. Police launched an investigation after discovering traces of benzalkonium chloride in the nurses’ station, the same chemical found in Yamaki and Nishikawa.

Kuboki’s former co-workers said they were shocked to hear about the nurse’s arrest.

"We had had no inkling that she was a problem employee,” one co-worker told Asahi Shimbun newspaper.

Another said: “She was the kind of person who was hard to figure out … but she was considered competent."
