Two nurses are fired over faked insulin tests

DULUTH - Two nurses at a Duluth nursing home have been fired for allegedly skipping blood-sugar tests for seven residents and reporting fabricated numbers as their insulin levels.

The state Department of Health says the faked numbers were later used as the basis to give or deny insulin to the residents.

A Duluth News Tribune report Saturday says the alleged actions occurred last year at Cook Nursing Home. Cook Hospital Administrator Allen Vogt says no one was harmed.

The investigation began after one resident said she couldn't remember having her blood sugar checked or receiving insulin.
