The board issued a cease and desist order against Lisa Piatak of Shelton to stop practicing nursing without a license. The board found that after her licensed practical nurse license expired in 2010, Piatak practiced as an LPN without a license for six more years, its memorandum of decision states.
The board also suspended the RN license of Lori Riley of Sharon, saying that she has not complied with the terms of an earlier probation. In June, the board placed her license on probation for two years because, records show, she took a painkiller meant for a patient and replaced it with Tylenol while working for All About You Homecare in Torrington.
The nursing board also found that in 2014, Riley abused Percocet, Oxycodone and Vicodin and was hospitalized for a drug overdose, records show.
The board revoked the RN license of Maria Roach of Stratford after finding that she suffers from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder to a degree that she cannot safely practice as a nurse, according to its memorandum of decision.
