“I ain’t got time for that shit”

A nurse in Japan told police that she sped up the deaths at least 20 patients to avoid having to tell families that their loved ones died while she was working, local media reported.

Ayumi Kuboki, 31, was arrested Saturday for the death of Sozo Nishikawa, 88, who was poisoned in 2016 with an antiseptic at Oguchi Hospital, The Asahi Shimbun and The Japan Times reported. According to the two Japanese news outlets, Kuboki told investigators that informing families of a patient’s death was a burden, and a task reserved for the nurse on duty.

    In this case, she’s a murderer, sounds like she needs a psych eval and a prison cell.

    However, in more general terms, such an act probably wouldn’t be a matter of laziness in Japan. Most of the West are guilt-based cultures, whereas most of Asia are shame-based cultures. When she describes the “burden” of informing the families, she’s actually describing her extreme drive to avoid the discomfort of being involved in a shameful act. It’s the main reason so many Japanese drink so heavily.
