Posted: Updated:

Police say a patient caught a nurse at  University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics stealing her medication. 

According to a criminal complaint, a patient became concerned after Jessica Debrower of Williamsburg picked up a prescription of Hydrocodone for her. She then contacted UIHC.

The patient did not give Debrower permission to pick up the Hydrocodone. Debrower then threw away the pills.

Another complaint says Debrower arranged to pick up Oxycodone for a patient, but that patient did not give her permission to do so. UIHC stopped Debrower before she could pick up the drugs. 

Debrower is charged with possession of prescription drugs and a prohibited act with a controlled substance.
