Bakersfield nurse practitioner accused of identity theft, other crimes to get drugs
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
A Bakersfield nurse practitioner is accused of falsifying her medical records and illegally using doctors' signature stamps in order to prescribe herself controlled substances.
Jasmine Hill was arrested earlier this month and faces nine felonies and one misdemeanor, according to the California Department of Consumer Affairs. Charges include identity theft, perjury and illegally issuing prescriptions.
She also allegedly forged an application to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get a disabled parking placard.
Her arraignment is set for this week.
The Department of Consumer Affairs said Hill might've falsified documents using information from other health care facilities or physicians and asked any potential victims to call lead investigator Rod Spaulding at (559) 244-5658.
