          Nurse Admits She Has Stolen Drugs From Hospital And Gotten High While On The Job


          October 9, 2018

          Heather, a nurse, says that after suffering from extreme back pain and being prescribed prescriptions medications, she has now turned into a real-life “Nurse Jackie.” She admits to shooting up a variety of drugs and even getting high while on the job.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Relative gone from big success to a total mess?

          Dr. Phil questions Heather about her behavior. “While you were taking care of patients, you were under the influence of drugs,” he says, “that you stole from the hospital.”

          “Yes,” Heather confirms.

          “That’s a felony,” Dr. Phil points out.

          “I really didn’t think I was that bad. So, I hear you saying it, but it’s just really hard to swallow,” Heather says. “I just never thought this would be me.”
