JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — A Union County grand jury has indicted a nurse for illegally taking drugs prescribed for patients and in one instance filing for Medicaid to reimburse her for the drug.
The Mississippi attorney general's office identifies the nurse as 48-year-old Shawna Russell Smith, who worked at a care center in New Albany.
Prosecutors accuse Russell of stealing hydrocodone from patients.
She's out of jail on a $10,000 bond.
