BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - A nurse who worked at four hospitals in the Denver area has been sentenced for stealing patient records and identity theft.
Thirty-one-year-old Cannon Tubb was sentenced to six years of community corrections. KMGH-TV reports that the sentence came despite the district attorney's request for a prison sentence.
Tubb worked for a now-defunct Denver nurse staffing agency that placed him as an intensive care unit nurse in numerous Centura Health facilities, the Platte Valley Medical Center and Boulder Community Hospital.
During his employment in late 2010 and early 2011, Tubb accessed patient records and used that information to steal the credit card and personal information of patients in the hospitals.
