Nurse accused of taking fentanyl from 2 KC-area hospitals

A nurse has been charged with taking the powerful opioid fentanyl from medicine cabinets at two Kansas City-area hospitals. The U.S. attorney's office for Kansas announced that a federal grand jury has indicted Faith Naccarato, 41, of Kansas City, Missouri, on four charges. She is charged with two counts of illegally possessing fentanyl through deception or subterfuge and two counts of tampering with a consumer product. Her court-appointed federal public defender did not immediately respond to a telephone message and email seeking comment. She is scheduled to appear Oct. 18 in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas. Prosecutors alleged that from early January into late April, 2020, Naccarato use a fingerprint to gain access to automated drug-dispensing cabinets. The indictment alleges that Naccarato took a total of at least six vials of fentanyl, removed the drug from them and replaced the drug with an "alternate liquid" before returning the vials to the medicine cabinets.
