Indianapolis nurse suspended over suspected narcotics use

Posted on Friday, December 4th, 2015    

A female nurse in Indianapolis recently had her license suspended following allegations of narcotics use, a Nov. 27 article by the Herald Bulletin reported.

According to the Indiana State Board of Nursing, Sherri Lynn Waskom’s license was suspended for 90 days due to allegations that she is abusing narcotics. Waskom reportedly tested positive for using opiates and alcohol several times between May 2014 and November 2015, the board said.

Though Waskom has not been charged with a misdemeanor or felony, the board stated that she presented a “clear and immediate danger to the public’s health and safety” if she was allowed to continue practicing as a registered nurse.
