ST. PAUL, Minn. – A registered nurse has been indicted for fraudulently obtaining prescription opioid pain medications from a hospice clinic, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.
According to court documents, Cambie Elizabeth Broker, 33, was a registered nurse case manager at a hospice clinic in Baxter, Minnesota. Broker entered false prescription requests into the clinic’s e-prescribing software to fraudulently obtain oxycodone, hydromorphone, and fentanyl for illegal sale and personal use.
Broker made her initial appearance today in U.S. District Court before Magistrate Judge Micko.
This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the DEA and the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Bradley M. Endicott is prosecuting the case.
An indictment is merely an allegation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
