The nurse was charged with undertaking professional activities while intoxicated, which is punishable by a high fine or imprisonment. The woman pleaded guilty.
– The findings so far do not indicate that until the intervention, her irresponsible behavior put patients at risk of loss of life or health, which in turn would constitute a crime punishable by three years in prison – informed the police officer.
