Legal Nursing Expert Witnesses & Nurse Charged With Fraud

Legal nursing expert witnesses may opine on nursing standards of care, clinical nursing, acute nursing care, standards of practice for nursing in hospitals, and more.  In South Carolina, nurse Brooke Sissom was charged with nine counts of obtaining controlled substances by fraud at the Manchester Health Care Center.  Ms. Sissom allegedly used patient’s prescriptions to gain pain medications which she took herself or sold.  The defendant’s nursing license was placed in probation in 2009 in Tennessee due to “unauthorized removal of controlled substances without authorization” and “incorrect entries in patient records.”
