NYC nurse admits stealing fentanyl from Montefiore Medical Center
Olivia Daniti, 31, admitted to swiping the highly addictive opioid from Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx between Oct. 27 and Oct. 29. The hospital fired her three days later.
Daniti, who has been a registered nurse since 2011, stole 45 vials from machines that dispense medicine. She hit the machine 20 times on her days off, sources told The News
Another nurse allegedly saw that Daniti noted a dose of fentanyl in a patient’s file and grew suspicious.
The hospital contacted the NYPD, which investigated with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the city’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor’s office.
Daniti was at Montefiore for five months and worked in a cardiac unit. Within a month, sources say, she started raiding the medicine stash, even though she’s only charged with the October thefts.
