A registered nurse who was employed at Abbott Northwestern Hospital is charged with fraudulently obtaining opioid pain medication.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, 30-year-old Matthew Allen Amundson of Northfield would steal primarily hydromorphone.
Between January through April 2015, Amundson used the hospital's medication dispensing system and used syringes to take the opioid from vials designated for patients. Then, he would replace the vials with a saline solution and return them into the dispensing system, the indictment states.
