Rome – Dr. Carlo Mosca’s online patient reviews describe a loving “humanist” who saved countless lives before the coronovirus epidemic Italy. Patients and their families praised the loving father, whose hospital in Brescia, northern Italy, was hit hardest during the first wave of epidemics last March.
Something clearly changed in Mosca when the epidemic spread. The 47-year-old was arrested this week on double homicide charges, accused of killing vulnerable COVID patients and filing their medical records to empty beds for other patients. Mosca has called the allegations baseless that it is claimed that the cause of death of the patients is the health care system.
During the first months of the epidemic, Italian doctors were faced with frightening decisions in deciding who to live and deliver other supplies, often deciding who would live or die based on their chances of survival. Is, essentially allowing vulnerable people to die due to lack of treatment. But the Mosca who have been accused of taking it a step further and killing the patients themselves.
Two patients who came under Mosa’s care, Natalis Bassi, 61, and Angelo Paletti, 80, died last month as prosecutors made a case against a primary care physician using text messages between nurses Were seeing who Dr. Seen the loving doctor once. Jekyll in a sinister Mr. Hyde – though one very likely overwhelmed by the vast magnitude of human tragedy surrounding him.
According to court documents, the investigating magistrate in the case suggested that Mosca was “a victim of extreme stress, stemming from the growing influx of COVID cases.” “The replication of extreme conditions arising due to his crimes made it possible that he resolved to administer restricted drugs to the most serious patients in order to trigger his death, which inaccurate data contained in relative medical records goes.” By simply stopping treatment, patients may burn for weeks or months. The prosecution injected him, writing that he could quickly release the much-needed beds.
Authorities are now being combated through the records of all of Mosa’s dead patients to discover discrepancies in their treatment and deaths. They do not refuse to assume further corpses, although most people who died during the height of the first wave of the epidemic were cremated.
As Mosca’s hospital was overwhelmed and more than 600 COVID patients were suddenly in her care, nurses say she began directing them to inject lethal doses of Succinylcholine and Propofol, which is often when patients Were intended to assimilate, not to COVID victims. . According to court documents, using drugs on non-intubated patients suffocates them. According to court documents seen by The Daily Beast, during the months of March and April, orders for both drugs rose by 70 percent before a nurse confronted Mosca, threatening to report.
As things progressed more, nurses began exchanging worrisome messages, which now make up the case for the prosecution and at least one confronted them about their state of mind. “Did he ask you to intubate the drugs?” A nurse wrote. “I am not killing patients just because they want to empty the beds. This is crazy, ”wrote another.
When nurses began to reject Mosca’s orders, they allegedly began injecting patients in person, asking nurses to leave them alone with patients. Prosecutors say they also wrote an incorrect terminal diagnosis on the patients’ charts, giving them a more reliable cause of death.
Mosca, who is placed on leave from her hospital, is under arrest until her trial begins this spring.
