Indiana Nurse Suspended for Drug Abuse

Posted on Monday, April 11th, 2011    

A nurse was recently suspended indefinitely

by the Indiana State Board of Nursing after she was found to have a drug dependency problem.

Co-workers of the nurse had reported that she had been acting strangely at work and was verbally abusing several patients. The nurse was then forced to take a drug test, which found that she had Fentanyl, a painkiller, in her system. She was fired from her job and became employed by another nursing home, where she allegedly stole several narcotics.

The Board has suspended the nurse’s license indefinitely.
