An East Texas woman accused of posing as a nurse at Davita Dialysis on South Washington Avenue in Marshall has been indicted on fraudulent use/possession of identifying information and two counts of nursing regulation violations.
According to our newspaper partners, the Longview News Journal, Stephanie Garcia, 30, of Henderson used a registered nurse license number as identifying information on a job application on March 6, 2017.
The indictment also claims Garcia practiced professional nursing without a license on July 10 and July 16, 2017.
The investigation was prompted by a complaint to the Texas Board of Nursing by former Davita patient Judy Webb and her husband.
The nursing board took the case to the Harrison County District Attorney’s office a year ago.
Because of a conflict of interest, District Attorney Coke Solomon recused himself from the case, and attorney Rick Hurlburt was appointed to serve as special prosecutor.
The DA’s office turned the case over in January to the Marshall Police Department.
