Opioid Abuse Leads to Patient Endangerment

By billupsj

A nurse at a hospital in Washington state was arrested for infecting patients with hepatitis C while diverting pain medications from IV preparations. Cora Weberg, 31, is facing second-degree assault charges involving the intentional infection of two patients with the disease as well as the misappropriation of drugs from the Puyallup Good Samaritan Hospital.  The nurse discovered she was infected with Hepatitis C in March 2018.
