Nurse in Germany charged with attempted killing of five babies

Authorities in southwestern Germany detained an intensive care nurse, suspecting that she had attempted to kill five newborn babies in her charge with morphine.

The babies, at least some of them prematurely born, fell simultaneously ill in the early hours of Dec. 20, suffering from shortness of breath. Thanks to prompt medical intervention, all recovered and are not expected to face long-term harm. Hospital authorities first suspected an infection, but urine tests disproved that theory, while at the same time revealing traces of morphine in all five infants even though two of them had not been prescribed the drug.
