A Lincolnton, NC woman was fired this past week from her job as a nurse for allegedly taking prescription medication from the hospital. Now, authorities with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incident.
According to the Lincoln County, NC Sheriff, the Sheriff’s Office received a call on February 4th regarding a disobedient employee. The Sheriff did not release the name of the nurse but said she had been fired because it was believed she was stealing a certain prescription medication.
