Nurse is accused of robbing a patient

By Owen Weldon     Dec 7, 2007 in Crime
Next time you are in the ER you should leave your belongings elsewhere unless you want to fall victim to identity theft, have your credit cards stolen and used and have your cash disappear from your wallet.
Next time you have to spend sometime in the ER you better make sure you leave your valuables elsewhere unless you want to end up like a patient did in a hospital’s ER in Florida.
The source says a 33-year-old nurse is now accused of robbing a man that was her patient. She has resigned from her position after she was accused of stealing roughly around $1,000 in cash and several credit cards that belong to the patient. The accused nurse is Ida Quinones and she used the victim’s credit cards to purchase such items as a $600 computer.
It is not said how the nurse was able to obtain the wallet but now she is in some serious trouble and is facing charges of credit card fraud, grand theft and identity theft.
The victim was not named and when a news crew tried to contact the nurse’s husband he told them to contact their lawyer and he had no comment.
The hospital has ways and procedures to follow in order to protect patient’s belongings but an employee of the hospital did not disclose what those procedures are because the investigation is ongoing. It is not said when the nurse will be in court.
