WALL LAKE, Iowa — A nurse has been accused of stealing painkillers from a nursing home in northwest Iowa.

Court records say 50-year-old Michelle Green is charged with fraudulent practice, dependent adult abuse, tampering with records and four counts of prohibited acts. A Wall Lake phone listed for Green has been disconnected. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for her.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 26.

Court records say Green kept for herself narcotic medications that she’d ordered for residents when she was working at Twilight Acres nursing home in Wall Lake between Jan. 1 and May 2.
