— 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.
