TBI reportedly investigating health department
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Broadcast reports in Nashville say the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is reviewing a case involving the state Department of Health and several state lawmakers.
WSMV-TV and WTVF-TV reported Monday that the probe centers on three nurses whose licenses were revoked for overprescribing pills but then were reinstated later.
WSMV reported that two patients died, citing a report in May by the Kingsport Times News.
A spokeswoman for the health department said the agency is cooperating with the investigation.
