Prosecutors: Fake “Nurse” Treated Patients


by Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors have charged a man with no medical training of lying his way into a volunteer nursing position at a San Francisco clinic.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 39-year-old Brian Litz was arraigned March 30 on charges of practicing medicine without a license and identity theft. He has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say Litz provided a forged certificate from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners to the SF City Impact to work at the clinic December 2013 to April 2014.

Litz is accused of treating at least 28 patients and prescribing controlled drugs to at least two of them.
