Holly Springs woman accused of posing as nurse for drugs

Posted April 5, 2010

— A Holly Springs woman is accused of impersonating a registered nurse to obtain prescription drugs.

Leoette Ann Scott, 36, of 105 Polyanthus Place, is charged with one count of embezzling a controlled substance by an employee and one count of practicing nursing without a license, according to arrest warrants.

The warrants say Scott used another nurse's license number and treated patients at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center from June 2008 to September 2008.

During that time, authorities also allege that she embezzled hydromorphone, which is usually used to treat severe pain.

    obviously the co-workers don't pay close attention in other workers. i would not want to go to this hospital because it seems they don't pay attention to who they hire.

    From June to September and no one figured out she wasn't a nurse?????????? What kind of system do they have there for hiring?

    She and her husband are real pieces of work... They bounce checks all over the place (I know from personal experience) and he was charged with insurance fraud and assault on a female in September. Here's the kink about their fraud scheme. Not too bright, these two. http://wake.mync.com/site/wake/news%7CSports%7CLifestyles/story/42334/holly-springs-man-charged-with-insurance-fraud
