Attorney General Michael Delaney announces that the New Hampshire Board of Nursing has suspended the license of registered nurse Catherine George of Derry, New Hampshire. The emergency suspension, effective October 23, 2012, is in response to questions surrounding the October 9, 2012 death of Ms. George's brother-in-law, Randall Percival of Raymond, New Hampshire.
On October 14, 2012, Ms. George went to the Derry Police Department and stated that she had killed her brother-in-law. Ms. George reportedly told police that she gave her brother-in-law 300 units of insulin, which she claimed to have brought home from her job.
The Board of Nursing has scheduled a hearing on November 2, 2012 to determine if the suspension of Ms. George's license should continue pending completion of the Board's investigation. A criminal investigation by the New Hampshire State Police Major Crimes Unit and the Raymond, New Hampshire Police is also ongoing.
A copy of the Board of Nursing's Order of Emergency Suspension and Notice can be obtained from the New Hampshire Board of Nursing, 21 S. Fruit Street, Concord, New Hampshire; 603-271-2323.
