Iowa City nurse's license suspended

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A former nurse at Mercy Hospital in Iowa City has been suspended by state regulators for using drugs on the job.

State records show that last May, Stacy Wilkerson of Solon took a powerful antidepressant and an anti-anxiety drug at work. Records show she made several mistakes while taking life-support systems off a dying patient.

She was fired June 4th.

Now, the Iowa Board of Nursing has suspended Wilkerson's license pending a drug evaluation, treatment and 12 months of sobriety.
