Medical Supplies

What I want to know is who in the hell looks on eBay for a spinal care kit or replacement knees? Does it come with a "do it yourself" book also? hehe

A hospital worker stole medical supplies such as replacement knees and a $116,000 kit for spinal care and sold many of the items on eBay, authorities said.

Those items and boxes full of forceps and other equipment were found in the home of Brian Pickens, police said.

Pickens, 31, took at least $200,000 in medical equipment from St. Mary's Medical Center and pocketed more than $12,000 from up to 200 sales on eBay since early last year, police Detective Kirk Pritchett said. The stolen goods were sold to people in the United States, Russia, Ukraine, Great Britain and Mexico, he added.

Pickens, a nurse's aide for three years, was charged Wednesday with one felony count of theft, but police said more charges were possible. Pickens' lawyer, Scott Danks, said Thursday his client acknowledged wrongdoing, but the value of the equipment was "hugely exaggerated."

Danks said Pickens bought some of the medical equipment from yard sales and online, hoping to resell it for a profit. Most items taken from St. Mary's have been returned, he said.

The $200,000 estimate on how much was stolen "will go higher," Pritchett said.

Pickens was fired Wednesday, hospital spokesman Jeff Jones said.

Wow, I thought that people would want to steal medical supplies. I'm really wondering who bought these things and why? Thanks for the interesting update, it's always a fun read.
