FARMINGTON -- A nurse who worked with infants has been charged with seven felony counts of forging prescriptions.
Camille Hyatt, 33, of Layton, was arrested Monday and booked in Davis County Jail on seven counts of making a false prescription, third-degree felonies. She has since been released. No court date has yet been set.
Police Lt. Mark Chatlin said a pharmacist at Walgreens in Kaysville called police in March to report a suspicious prescription.
Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force officers investigated the complaint and learned the prescription came from Hyatt.
When confronted, Hyatt told officers she had stolen a prescription pad from her place of employment.
Officers also found that Hyatt had either called in prescriptions or passed forged prescriptions at several different pharmacies.
The prescriptions were for oxycodone and Valium, Chatlin said.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland said Hyatt told police she worked in the infant surgical critical care unit at Primary Children's Medical Center.
A spokeswoman for Primary Children's confirmed Hyatt had worked at the hospital, but could not confirm her current employment status or how long she had been employed.
According to the state's Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing website, Hyatt has had a registered nursing license since 2000. No disciplinary actions have been taken against Hyatt.
Jennifer Bolton, spokeswoman with the Department of Commerce, said DOPL officials are aware of the charges against Hyatt and "will continue to monitor the case."
