A Nurse Allegedly Cut Off a Patient’s Foot, Hoped to Use It to Scare Kids

“Wisconsin police allege that Mary K. Brown amputated a foot from a 60-year-old man who resided in the Pierce County, Wisconsin hospice care centre she worked at. He had fallen in his home and the heat went out causing his feet to become frostbitten and necrotic (essentially rotting). According to a criminal complaint obtained by VICE News, a nurse described the feet as being “foul-smelling”, only being held on by bits of skin and “several white tendons”, and being “black like a mummy.””

“According to one of the nurses interviewed in the criminal complaint, Brown was changing the bandages on the man’s feet and she remarked on why the foot was still there. Brown, despite not having an order from a doctor, allegedly then made the decision to amputate the foot. The amputation was not done in secret and several nurses were there to aid Brown and comfort the victim.”
