Ohio woman found pretending to be hospital worker

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Security officials at a central Ohio hospital are on alert after they twice found a woman wearing scrubs and a stethoscope pretending to be an employee.

Officials at Grant Medical Center in Columbus on Friday said they located the woman wandering near the infant floor on Wednesday and on a different floor the following day.

OhioHealth Vice President of Security Operations Harry Trombitas says the woman was escorted out of the building in both instances and the hospital has filed a criminal complaint against her. Trombitas says the woman was unable access the secure areas housing infants and mothers.

Employees have been instructed to contact police should they see her again. Area hospitals have been alerted about the woman.

Her identity was not immediately available.
