Well, Ain’t That Some Sh*t!

A Chandler, AZ woman is accused of a somewhat unusual murder attempt on her husband:

A Chandler woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder Thursday after she was caught injecting her husband’s IV line with fecal matter at Chandler Regional Hospital, according to court documents.

Rosemary Vogel’s husband was in the hospital recovering from surgery when Vogel, 55, made an attempt on his life, Chandler Police Spokesman Sgt. Joe Favazzo said.

Apparently, Rosemary Vogel is a nurse herself, and thus well aware of the potential effects of her actions.

My question is, if one injects shit into an IV line, must one cleanse the injection port first?

    You always want to use sanitary technique!

    Of course you have to clean the port, just as you use Betadine to cleanse the injection site for executions.

    Of course… :-)

    No, one must cleanse the injection port after. Evidence, y’see …

    One must wonder if she was trying to outright kill him, or just make him sicker. Oh, I know that will be her defense argument – “I was just trying to punish him, not kill him.” But ‘Munchausen By Proxy’ is scary stuff…
