Minnesota nurse charged with stealing pain medication

(St. Paul, Minn) – A 33-year-old Minnesota woman is charged for fraudulently obtaining prescription pain medications from a hospice clinic in Baxter, Minn.

According to court documents, Cambie Elizabeth Broker, 33, was a registered nurse case manager at a hospice clinic in Baxter. She entered false prescription requests in the facility’s e-prescribing software. Those requests allowed her to fraudulently obtain oxycodone, hydromorphine and fentanyl for illegal sale and personal use.

She made an initial appearance Wednesday in US District Court.
