Cook told Pou how to administer a combination of morphine and a benzodiazepine sedative. He later said he believed that Pou understood that he was telling her how to help the patients“go to sleep and die.” That was different from what she and her colleagues on the second floor already knew how to do and were doing: treat patients for comfort. Over the previous hours, nurses had alerted Pou, Fournier, or King when a patient in the staging area appeared to be in pain or anxious, and the doctors prescribed doses of medicine. Pharmacists had dispensed Ambien, Ativan, diphenhydramine, Geodon, and Restoril to help patients relax and sleep; and morphine, OxyContin, and Vicodin for pain. “…die at a very early age”: Ibid.:155.
