Nurse guilty of forging a prescription

A Victorian nurse has been fined and lost her job after forging a prescription to illegally obtain 5mg of Endone.

Margaret Black was found guilty to one count of theft and one count of forging a prescription for a drug of dependence in the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria after she presented the falsified prescription which she stole from Beleura Private Hospital (Mornington Peninsula) to a local pharmacy. 

Ms Black was ordered to pay $500 to the court fund and placed on a good behaviour bond for two years but escaped any conviction
