Katie Louise Boll, a nursing home employee, has been charged with allegedly diverting drugs from residents for her own use, according to information filed in federal court. A grand jury returned an indictment charging Boll with acquiring a controlled substance by deception and tampering with consumer products in Iowa.
At least 13 patients were affected. She allegedly injured one of the patients when she took part of the patient’s oral morphine sulfate solution and diluted it with mouthwash on Dec. 24, 2018. Later that week, on Dec. 29, 2018, she allegedly used her position to swap codeine, hydrocodone oxycodone, morphine and tramadol medications for at least 10 patients with Tylenol and other medicine.
Boll worked as a nurse at the Good Neighbor Society in Manchester, and between September 2018 and January 2019 she took about 50 hydrocodone pills. What a waste. I hope she gets the help she needs, and those poor residents get the justice they deserve.
