Suspected fake nurse at ambulance wreck steals medic's coat, offers aid
She was removed from the scene for hindering rescue efforts, and deputies are investigating if her claims that she was a trauma nurse are true
ATHENS, Ga. — A White County woman could face criminal charges after she stopped at an ambulance wreck on Saturday in Bishop, where she put on a stolen paramedic’s coat and offered medical assistance after telling a deputy she was a hospital trauma nurse, authorities said Monday.
However, the woman was ordered off the wreck scene after Oconee County emergency crews asked the deputy to remove her because she was hindering their rescue efforts, according to an Oconee County Sheriff’s report.
Deputies had not determined Monday if she was actually a nurse, Chief Deputy Lee Weems said.
