Nurse pleads not guilty in stolen medications case
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A nurse has been accused of stealing medications from patients at a nursing home in Dubuque.
Dubuque County Court records say 37-year-old Jenny Tjaden has pleaded not guilty to unlawfully obtaining prescription drugs and to records tampering. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.
Her trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 13.
Court records say Tjaden was working as a nurse at Stonehill Franciscan Services in October when she stole prescription drugs from three patients.
