A former nurse at Brookville Hospital is facing charges for allegedly taking larger amounts of medications from the hospital’s pharmacy than necessary to treat her patients.

The state attorney general’s office says 37-year-old Tricia Haugh of Kittanning was working as an anesthetist in the hospital operating room in October of last year when was seen singing and talking to herself, was unable to remain still, had pinpoint eye pupils and tried to hide from co-workers.

The charges state that Haugh was immediately removed from the operating room and asked to take a drug test, which she declined.

Attorney General Tom Corbett says a sealed syringe, a full and sealed vial of Propofol and a full and sealed vial of Flumazenil were found in Haugh’s employee locker.

Narcotics agents found that between August 2009 and October 1, 2009 12 out of 21 patient records had discrepancies in Fentanyl administration during their procedure.

Haugh is free on her own recognizance.
