Neb. AG Bruning: Bellevue Nurse Should Lose License

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning says the only nurse at Dr. LeRoy Carhart's abortion clinic in Bellevue should lose her license because of substandard care there.

Bruning said Wednesday he had filed a petition with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to revoke Lindsey Creekmore's license.

Bruning says Creekmore failed to accurately follow patient medication orders and improperly delegated some patient care to unlicensed staff.

The case against Creekmore is based partly on information from another nurse who used to work at the clinic.

Neither Creekmore nor Carhart was immediately available to comment Wednesday.

Carhart is a prominent defender of abortion rights and has successfully challenged abortion laws before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the past, Carhart has denied allegations of poor care at his clinic.
