The state has “indefinitely suspended” the nursing license of a woman who stole prescription medication from patients and replaced it with Tylenol, according to the Department of Health.

Katherine Savage-Landrum worked at the Roolan Health Care Center in Lacey when she allegedly stole the drugs January 2009 to June 2009.

The department charged her with unprofessional conduct after she admitted stealing the medication for personal use and replacing it with over-the-counter Tylenol, records show.

Her license was suspended last month.
