Sheriff: Woman posing as nurse treated over 100 patients
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Authorities in Louisiana say more than 100 patients received care and medication from a woman who wasn't authorized to be a nurse.
A news release from Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says 59-year-old Sandra Jeannett Martin was arrested Friday at her home in Shreveport. The sheriff says Martin used the identity of another Sandra Martin to convince a nursing home that she was a licensed practical nurse.
Prator says Martin was originally hired as a social worker. The sheriff says she worked over 1,000 hours posing as a nurse.
Martin has been charged with forgery, making false statements and unlicensed practice of nursing. She was booked in the Caddo Correctional Center and later released on bond.
It's unclear whether she has an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
