Home / National News / FBI: Texas Hospice Owner Allegedly Drugged Patients on Purpose

 

(DALLAS) — The FBI is involved in an investigation into a hospice company in Texas after allegations that nurses are intentionally overdosing their patients.

Local affiliate KXAS-TV reports the probe initially focused on Novus Health Care Services’ apparent attempts to recruit patients who did not qualify for hospice services and potentially fraudulent billing.

But a search warrant obtained by KXAS-TV suggests that hospice owner Brad Harris regularly directed nurses to overdose patients with drugs to speed their deaths.

No charges have been filed against Harris.
