Nurse uses dead patients credit card - Sarasota, Fl

A female Florida hospital employee has been arrested for using a deceased patient’s credit cards to make purchases.
The victim of the theft died in the emergency room where the women worked on June 10. Within hours after his death, his three credit cards were used to purchase airline tickets, bridal shoes, pay phone bills and other assorted items totaling over $1,186.00. A patient registration representative in the emergency room was identified as a suspect.
Yesterday the women was arrested on a warrant for identity theft and 7 counts of credit card fraud.
So, this woman used the credit cards of a dead man to pay off her *personal* phone bills? *And* she didn't expect to be caught within a couple of weeks? With staff as mind-bogglingly stupid as that, it's no surprise the patient/victim died.
