Nurse Accused of Stealing Colleagues' IDs

A Texas nurse has been accused of stealing the identities from dozens of fellow hospital workers and possibly of patients.

She has been arrested for credit card abuse for allegedly stealing personal information (PII) and using it to open credit cards in other people's names. As a nurse who worked in hospitals as well as in home healthcare she had access not only to employee information but patient information as well.

"She's a nurse and she has access to not only employee information but patient information, as well."
- Lakeview police
