Patients, families are in the dark over risky MN nurses

Star Tribune, November 14, 2013
Leslie Anderson had no reason to distrust the nurse she let into her home to care for her 4-year-old daughter, who requires around-the-clock medical attention for a rare disease that has left her a quadriplegic and unable to talk. Five months later, Anderson caught the nurse, Kelli Ingalls, stealing her daughter's pain medication. Anderson did not know until contacted by the Star Tribune that Ingalls had a drug history that included methamphetamine abuse and a county finding that Ingalls maltreated a child by allegedly operating a meth lab in her home.
