A REGISTERED NURSE WAS PLACED ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE FRIDAY FROM MEMORIAL HOSPITAL OF CONVERSE COUNTY FOR ALLEGEDLY STEALING A NARCOTIC PAINKILLER FROM THE HOSPITAL FOR HIS PERSONAL USE.
RYAN HARRIS ALSO HAD HIS LICENSE SUMMARILY SUSPENDED BY THE WYOMING STATE BOARD OF NURSING FOR TWO REASONS: DIVERSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AND INABILITY TO PRACTICE SAFELY BY REASON OF ALCOHOL OR OTHER SUBSTANCE ABUSE.

KARL HERTZ, MEDIA CONTACT AT THE HOSPITAL, SAID WEDNESDAY THE DOUGLAS COUNTY ATTORNEY IS INVESTIGATING ALONG WITH THE STATE NURSING BOARD AND THE WYOMING STATE BOARD OF PHARMACY. THOSE INVESTIGATIONS ARE CURRENTLY UNDERWAY, AND HERTZ SAID HE IS NOT AWARE OF CHARGES HAVING BEEN FILED AGAINST HARRIS AT THIS POINT.

THE SUSPENSION WENT INTO EFFECT THURSDAY. AS SUCH, HARRIS IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO PRACTICE NURSING IN ANY CAPACITY WITHIN THE STATE OF WYOMING.

AS A RESULT OF HARRIS' ALLEGED ACTIONS, PATIENTS WHO WERE GIVEN DILAUDID AT THE HOSPITAL FROM SEPT. 13 THROUGH JUNE 2 MAY NOT HAVE RECEIVED THE MEDICATION AS PRESCRIBED. HARRIS COMPROMISED CERTAIN VIALS OF THE DRUG, THE HOSPITAL SAYS.

HARRIS, WHO HAS BEEN A REGISTERED NURSE AT THE HOSPITAL FOR SOME SEVEN YEARS, WOULD DRAW HYDROMORPHONE FROM VIALS, REFILLING THEM WITH SALINE. THIS WAS DONE IN THE PHARMACY, AND THE VIALS WERE THEN DISTRIBUTED TO DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS THROUGHOUT THE ORGANIZATION.

HARRIS ALLEGEDLY TOOK THE DRUG FOR PERSONAL USE.
ANY OF THE HOSPITAL'S PATIENTS WHO RECEIVED DILAUDID DURING THAT PERIOD CAN CALL 307-358-7345 TO REACH A DEDICATED PHONE LINE WHERE HOSPITAL STAFF WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.
