A Tavistock woman has admitted to taking drugs from the nursing home where she worked.
According to the Woodstock Sentinel-Review Melissa Kaufman pleaded guilty today to possessing and stealing Fentanyl patches.
The 26-year-old was working as a nurse at The Maples Home for Seniors when the allegations emerged earlier this year.
Fentanyl is a potent painkiller and is up to 100 times more powerful than morphine.
It’s used by some for recreational purposes.
Sentencing for Kaufman will take place on August 26th.
