Nebraska Attorney General Seeks Revocation of Carhart’s Only Nurse for Improperly Drugging Patients, Other Violations

Omaha, Nebraska – Lindsey Creekmore, a registered nurse working for late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart in both his Bellevue, Nebraska, and Germantown, Maryland abortion clinics had had charges filed against her nursing license by Attorney General Jon Bruning who is accusing her of improperly drugging patients.

Creekmore, the only registered nurse in Carhart’s employment, is accused of incompetence and negligence for administering incorrect intravenous dosages of sedatives and a labor-inducing drug to 11 patients between January 2011 and March 2012.

The complaint also alleges that Carhart’s Bellevue abortion clinic did not provide proper staffing for women in recovery. Nebraska law states that registered nurses cannot delegate complex nursing tasks to unlicensed workers, a law that Creekmore apparently routinely violated.

Her behavior violates the scope of practice in that she acted outside the boundaries of her profession and constitutes unprofessional conduct.

“Clinic records show a significant pattern of substandard care practices that, in any surgical center, would endanger the health and safety of the public,” Bruning said in a press release issued today. “We are seeking license revocation.”

Creekmore will face a formal disciplinary hearing on Aug. 5th disciplinary hearing before the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Division.

“This action proves that Carhart is operating a shoddy abortion business that endangers the lives of women through improper drugging and lack of proper post-operative monitoring, both violations of which can endanger the lives of patients,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We will be informing the authorities in Maryland of this action and asking for similar discipline.”

For years, Operation Rescue has alleged that Carhart and his staff have engaged in shoddy, dangerous practices and have taken action to see that Carhart and Creekmore were disciplined.

“The Nebraska complaint against Creekmore validates our accusations. It is our belief that these allegations are just the tip of the iceberg,” said Newman.

Carhart is currently under investigation by the Maryland Board of Physicians based on an Operation Rescue complaint for the death of Jennifer Morbelli, who died from complications to a 33-week abortion done by Carhart in Maryland.

    Abortion is not rare (go to any abortion clinic, they are usually packed across the country), Shouldn’t be legal (“An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.” St. Thomas Aquinas), and is Definitely not safe…for child or mother.. just ask my friend, oh wait she died. But not before leaving her testimony to help others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmQrRAo7pT8

    I know I am not with the times, but I would not be comfortable getting stuck with a needle by a nurse who had an entire arm covered by tattoos. What do people need that they think covering massive amounts of skin with ink will fulfill? Many fellow Marines got a tattoo or two before we went to Vietnam. One or two! now it is covering entire body regions. Is it no longer enough to be a human being as we were created?

    I dated Lindsey and actually lived with her in Nebraska for a few months. She would take pictures of the aborted fetuses and have them on her cellphone. I saw so many things that were disturbing as well as things at the clinic. I am glad to see she has finally gotten caught up with.

    With all those tatoos Lindsey doesn’t not appear to care about herself so why would we assume she would care about the life of a fetus.
