Male nurse arrested in saline enquiry

6th January 2012

Police investigating the poisoning of patients at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport have arrested a 46-year-old male nurse on suspicion of tampering with medical records.

The arrest came as it emerged a fourth death – on New Year’s Eve – was being investigated with the male nurse being held over reports medical forms were altered and a patient given extra medication. Last summer, three people died and 16 others were affected by the contamination of saline at the hospital. The nurse is one of the 650 people already spoken to by police since their investigation started.
