An Air Force nurse has been charged with giving lethal amounts of medication to three terminally ill patients in his care, military officials said. The nurse, Capt. Michael Fontana, 35, was formally charged in military court with deliberately giving three patients at Wilford Hall Medical Center lethal amounts of medication, and with conduct unbecoming an officer for allegedly changing a medical document. Wilford Hall, at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, is the Air Force’s largest hospital. An Article 32 hearing, the military equivalent to a grand jury proceeding, will be conducted, and the commander will decide whether the case goes to court-martial.
