Polish nurse, 37, admits confusing two lung cancer patients who were both called Roger and injecting one with the other man’s painkillers

16 February 2019 – Daily Mail

Southwark Crown Court heard that a nurse injected a cancer patient with another man’s medicine – because they were both named Roger.

Magdalena Starzynska, 37, administered an injection of the anesthetic Midazolam to Roger Allardyce, 78, instead of patient, Roger Sutton at Royal Free Hospital in London.

Mr Allardyce died four days later in February 2016. He had been suffering from lung cancer when the agency nurse confused him for another man on the ward who was also called Roger and suffering from the same condition.
