NH nursing assistant accused of diverting drugs

Associated Press Published: November 8, 2012

KEENE, N.H. (AP) — The license of a New Hampshire nursing assistant has been suspended over allegations that she diverted drugs from patients.

The attorney general's office says Renee Whipple of Swanzey sent an email to her employer admitting that she took a prescription painkiller from a resident at an assistant living facility.

The theft was reported to the Keene Police Department. The attorney general's office said Thursday that during a police interview, Whipple also said she took another painkiller from a different resident.

The state Board of Nursing will hold a hearing on Nov. 15 to determine if the suspension should continue during the board's investigation.
