A registered nurse who formerly worked for Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is facing multiple charges after an investigation by the Department of Health and Environmental Control.

According to arrest warrants, while working as a nurse, Hannah Danielle Reeves stole controlled substances on multiple occasions in April 2018.

Investigators said records reflect that Reeves dispensed morphine on several occasions but only half of the dose was administered and the other half of the dose was not given or documented as waste.

Warrants indicate a vial of morphine also went missing under her care, along with doses of Oxycodone, Hydromorphone and Lorazepam.

She is charged with 18 counts of violation of drug distribution laws.

Officials say, Reeves has not been employed with Spartanburg Regional since April.
