Nurse arrested in theft of credit card from dying COVID-19 patient, police say

A nurse at a New York City hospital was arrested Thursday after police say she stole a credit card from a patient who later died of COVID-19.

Danielle Conti, 43, took a credit card from a 70-year-old patient while he was being treated at Staten Island University Hospital, the NYPD said. Conti is facing charges of grand larceny, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, police said.
The hospital released a statement to local media Thursday saying that Conti, who was hired in 2007, has been temporarily suspended and faces termination over the felony charges.
“We are working closely with the law enforcement authorities and the hospital is conducting its own investigation,” the statement said.
