MN nurse accused of theft, infecting patients

The Star Tribune, March 18, 2011

St. Cloud Hospital officials have suspended a nurse suspected of giving 23 patients bacterial infections while stealing their pain medication.

Most of the patients were hospitalized in one unit from last October through early March. Hospital officials aren't sure if more people were infected and are asking any former patients who contracted an infection after they left the hospital to contact them.

The nurse was suspended last week after hospital, state and federal officials noticed a number of similar infections and began looking for a cause.
