Nurses Fired After Reporting Fabricated Blood Sugar Levels For Residents Never Tested

Two nursing home nurses have been fired after allegedly skipping blood-sugar tests for seven residents. According to officials, the nurses instead documented insulin levels which they simply made up. The report by the state Department of Health says the falsified numbers were later used as the basis to give or deny insulin to those residents.

The incidents occurred last year at the facility. None of the residents was harmed as a result of the fraudulent reports.
The investigation began following a report by a resident who couldn't remember having her blood sugar checked or receiving insulin the evening before. The two nurses involved were fired. For more, read the story.
