JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A nurse has been charged with withholding information on a felony at a former south Mississippi cancer clinic that prosecutors accused of fraud related to chemotherapy treatments.
Brittany Davis Powell was charged Aug. 22 in U.S. District Court in Jackson with misprision of a felony.
Court records say Powell didn't report that the clinic's founder ordered nurses to make retroactive entries in patients' files related to health care payments.
Rose Cancer Center founder Dr. Meera Sachdeva and two others were convicted in the case last year. Sachdeva was sentenced to 20 years.
In sentencing Sachdeva, the judge said prosecutors didn't prove that chemotherapy drugs were diluted as had been alleged.
But he said syringes were re-used and multiple patients' chemotherapy drugs were drawn from the same bag.
