A rural Western Pennsylvania nurse has been charged with the death of two people as well as the hospitalization of a third. Heather Pressdee, 40, from Natrona Heights, will face two counts of homicide, a count of attempted murder, a count of aggravated assault, three counts of neglect of a care-dependent person, and three counts of reckless endangerment.
Per a release from PA Attorney General Michelle Henry on May 25th, these injections were administered at Quality Life Services. The company specializes in and operates a skilled nursing facility in Chicora, PA where Pressdee was employed as a registered nurse. Per the AG, she stands accused of murder against 55- and 83-year-old men. Thanks to emergency hospitalization, a 73-year-old patient survived and is expected to make a full recovery.
Investigators were first suspicious when two of the three victims are not known diabetics. With little work required, they quickly discovered Pressdee was responsible for their care when the overdoses were administered. Taken into custody on the 24th, she was arraigned that evening and has been held in the Butler County Prison without bail since.
In a briefing, AG Henry said, “The allegations, in this case, outline the callous abuse of incredibly vulnerable patients by a professional nurse. As the charges indicate, these were deliberate and intentional acts perpetrated by a caregiver who was trusted to care for these victims. Be assured, my office will zealously pursue justice for the families of those who were killed, as well as the third victim who is fortunate to have survived.”
For what it’s worth, Quality Life Services has only expressed shock that someone would do that, and remorse for the families of the victims. Their deflection from any culpability is incredibly sickening, but also exactly what the leftists want to see the American people do when they get caught doing the wrong thing.
