Dr. Hedrick Employee Arrested For Reckless Prescribing
In an update to a story we brought you earlier this month, a former employee of Dr. William Hedrick’s Muncie pain clinic has been arrested regarding reckless prescribing charges. Susan Adam Hayes was a nurse practitioner at the clinic and now faces three counts of reckless prescribing.
After a Drug Enforcement Agency raid last fall, court documents linked the pain clinic to several prescription drug overdoses. Hayes has reportedly been the last person to sign the prescriptions in many cases. The state has identified eight patients that died under the care of Dr. Hedrick’s clinic, and the Delaware County Prosecutor’s office has now linked ten patient deaths to the clinic as of last month.
Dr. Hedrick recently had his medical license suspended indefinitely and is also under investigation for fraud, forgery, and violation of probation.
