The Ohio Board of Nursing temporarily suspended the license of a female nurse in Medina after she was accused of stealing medicine from several patients, an article by The Medina Gazette reported on January 22.
According to reports, 34-year-old Sarah Copley was charged late last year over suspicion that she stole strong medications from at least eight female patients inside a nursing facility. Investigator Tadd Davis revealed that Copley obtained strong painkillers from doctors whose patients were suffering from continuous pain. Copley managed to seize over 5,000 pills, Davis also revealed. Early this year, Copley pleaded not guilty to the charges and was discharged without posting a bond. The nursing board may permanently suspend Copley’s license if found guilty of the charges.
