Nebraska Abortion Clinic Nurse License Suspended
By Rebekah Rae. CREATED Jul 27, 2014
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A nurse at a suburban Omaha abortion clinic has had her nursing license suspended for 60 days and has been issued a two-year probationary license in an agreement with the state's top prosecutor.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the Nebraska Attorney General's Office had originally sought to revoke Lindsey Creekmore's registered nursing license.
In May 2013, the office filed a petition accusing Creekmore of failing to follow patient medication orders accurately and improperly delegating some patient care to unlicensed staff. The case was based partly on information from another nurse who had worked at Dr. LeRoy Carhart's clinic.
Creekmore reached the settlement earlier this month, ahead of a disciplinary hearing that had been set for next week.
