Texas Accountant Emerges as Early Contender for 2016’s Worst Person

By | 1 year ago

Brad Harris, the founder and owner of Novus Health Care Services in Frisco, Texas, has been accused of some pretty terrible things in a FBI affidavit for a search warrant obtained by a local affiliate.

Specifically, Harris allegedly instructed nurses to give hospice patients overdoses of medications like morphine to hasten their deaths:

Harris, an accountant, instructed a nurse to administer overdoses to three patients and directed another employee to increase a patient's medication to four-times the maximum allowed, the FBI said. He allegedly sent text messages like, "You need to make this patient go bye-bye."

In the first case, the employee refused to follow Harris' alleged instructions, according to the FBI affidavit. The document does not say whether the other three patients were actually harmed.

Harris also told other health-care executives over a lunch meeting that he wanted to "find patients who would die within 24 hours," and made comments like, "if this f—– would just die," an FBI agent wrote in the warrant.

Harris, as you might gather, has no medical training whatsoever. Donald Trump might have a contender on his hands.
