A registered nurse in Rushville, Indiana recently faced a license suspension following allegations that she was using methamphetamine, an article of The Star Press reported on June 7.
The Indiana State Board of Nursing stated that former Reid Health nurse Kasey Barnard tested positive for amphetamines and meth. Barnard reportedly confessed to buying and using the illegal drugs. The nursing board unanimously voted to suspend Barnard after she was considered to be a public threat. Reports revealed that approximately 13,000 Indiana nurses are dealing with substance addiction.
