Nurse Arrested for Patient ID Thefts

A registered nurse (RN) at a Florida hospital emergency room has been arrested for stealing patient identities and using the information to purchase items and having them sent to her home. She has also been fired by the hospital.

Law enforcement discovered that this hospital insider was a suspect during their investigation of separate fraudulent credit card cases.

"...victims' information had been stolen while receiving treatment at [the medical center] emergency room."
