Nursing Home Employee Found Collapsed at Facility Due to Heroin Overdose

Police have charged a nursing home employee who allegedly overdosed on heroin while at work. Law enforcement officials were called to the nursing home after several employees found their co-worker collapsed on the floor in a facility hallway.  Police who responded to the facility found two empty bags, which appeared to have contained heroin, and a syringe on a bathroom sink inside the nursing home.

According to police, the woman said that she had been clean for several weeks before using the two bags of heroin. The employee was hospitalized for treatment and is now facing drug charges. Officials do not believe that the woman was stealing drugs from the facility. For more, read the story.
