WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — A former nurse at Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital in Howland pleaded guilty Thursday to charges that she took drugs from the hospital and patients while she was working there.

Young began working at Hillside Hospital as a registered nurse in April of 2012. She was charged just two months later with the theft.
