Police: Ohio man posed as a nurse for 4 years

An Ohio man allegedly stole a licensed practical nurse's identity and used fraudulent documents to work as a nurse for four years, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost announced, according to WSET ABC 13.

Many of the man's patients were children, and he worked at two home health agencies starting in late 2015. Mr. Yost did not specify the agencies' names. 

The man has been charged with endangering children, identity fraud, Medicaid fraud and practicing nursing without a license, among other things, according to a grand jury indictment.
