Nursing Home LPN Arrested For Medication Theft

A licensed professional nurse working at a nursing home has been arrested for stealing prescription medication from the facility.  She was observed slurring her words and stumbling at her workplace.  She claimed she had low blood sugar when approached by detectives,  however the medication cart was missing pills when checked.

A dozen pills were also found in her purse including painkillers and seizure medication. A spokesperson for Families for Better Care said that the theft should be noted as a deficiency.  “"I've looked at hundreds of inspections reports, and you usually don't see the licensing and regulatory agencies writing deficiencies based on this type of a problem.”  For more, read the story.
