Former registered nurse accused of taking narcotic drugs intended for patients

NEAR SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A former nurse has been indicted for allegedly taking narcotic drugs that were intended for patients. On Tuesday, Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced that a State Grand Jury had indicted Danielle Lynn Langham on 23 drug diversion-related offenses. Investigators say that the 44-year-old Langham worked at a Scottsdale surgery center where she tampered with and diverted narcotic medications (Fentanyl and Dilaudid) from vials on hand at the surgery center. She was also accused of diverting the prescription drugs for her personal use and that she refilled the vials with sterile saline to avoid getting caught. The alleged offenses took place between August 2015 and May 2016. Langham previously surrendered her Arizona nursing license on May 2, 2017.
