He should have been executed.
Fentanyl is 100 times more powerful than morphine.
Obviously he was shooting up with small amounts of the drug, and then refilling the syringe with saline back to the proper level. If he had been emptying the vial he would have been caught much sooner. He was not using the entire amount he was diluting it, and contaminating the syringe in the process. In effect he is a serial killer.
He’s lucky - he should have been hanged.
Technically and legally this person was not an Exeter Hospital employee. He was a "traveler" working for a staffing company outside the State of New Hampshire.
Regardless of who he worked for this dude should be...well, you know.
