Former Nebraska hospital director accused of embezzling more than $4M

The former pharmacy director of Omaha, Neb.-based Children's Hospital and Medical Center is being investigated by the state's attorney general  in the embezzlement of over $4.43 million, according to WOWT News.

According to the attorney general's office, beginning in 2012, Lisa Kwapniowski began falsifying invoices for a fake drug called Broxcilam to a company called RxSYnergy, which she created.

2016 and 2017 were Ms. Kwapniowski's most profitable years, as she submitted $1.1 million in false claims during both. Hospital administrators learned of the embezzlement this year and terminated Ms. Kwapniowski while turning the matter over to authorities, WOWT News reported.
