Patients’ Deaths Ruthlessly Hastened in Texas Facility
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, April 6, 2016 (Cincinnati, OH) – The FBI has discovered that Brad Harris, CEO and founder of Texas Novus Health Care Services, Inc. reportedly directed employees to overdose hospice patients to speed death and maximize profits.
Harris, 34, established Novus in July 2012. He is an accountant with no medical background or training, who allegedly sent cold-blooded text messages to nurses such as, “You need to make this patient go bye-bye.”
“This horror illustrates that not all hospice facilities are trustworthy, and patients and family members must proactively protect themselves against charlatans,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “We must all know our rights, ask questions, be involved and informed.”
