Former Union Correctional nurse arrested in drug scheme

A former nurse at Union Correctional Institution was arrested Tuesday in a case that involved allegations of altering or falsifying a drug prescription, according to records released by the Florida Department of Corrections.

Lloyd Collins, who worked for the prison health contractor Corizon Health, was charged with falsifying or altering records and fraud in obtaining medicinal drugs, the department said in a news release.

Collins was fired in November. Records released by the department were heavily redacted to prevent release of protected information, but an arrest warrant indicates the case stems from an incident Nov. 2.

Part of the warrant alleged that Collins “did knowingly cause a prescription for a medicinal drug … to be falsely made or altered.”
