Houston nurse accused of murder, kidnapping

A 30 year-old Houston nurse appeared in court this week after she was accused of shooting a new mother and kidnapping the woman’s newborn son outside of a pediatrician’s office.

She is facing a capital murder charge but not a kidnapping charge since it is included under capital murder according to Texas law. The fatal shooting occurred on Tuesday in Spring.

Authorities found the woman that night where she confessed to shooting the 28 year-old woman and taking her child. Investigators found the child unharmed at her sister’s Houston apartment. The woman is a registered vocational nurse in both Texas and California.

Texas nurse could face death penalty for deaths

A Lufkin nurse has pleaded not guilty to five charges of murder after being accused of poisoning kidney dialysis patients with toxic bleach nearly four years ago.

She is accused of injecting toxic bleach into the dialysis lines of patients going through kidney dialysis; five people died and five others were injured as a result. Investigators say they found Internet searches on her computer about bleach detection in dialysis lines and bleach poisoning in blood.

A FDA report also shows that many patients tested positive for bleach and some showed signs of having bleach in their system at some time. Her lawyer refutes any wrongdoing on his client’s part.

Indiana Nurse Suspended for Drug Abuse

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.
