Former Nurse Reaches Plea Deal

Former Nurse Reaches Plea Deal

It’s community service and a fine for a former Eau Claire nurse charged with stealing drugs, including fentanyl.

Prosecutors yesterday agreed to a plea deal with Kathryn Coffin who used to work at Marshfield Medical Center in Eau Claire. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft charges and promised to stay drug free. Investigators say Coffin lied about prescribing over 126 doses of pain medication. She later tested positive for that same medication.
