BC nurse loses her job after assuming power of attorney and taking elderly woman's coin collection
Posted by Lynne Butler
Later, when this and other fraudulent facts started to come out, Orina told one of her workers to return the coin collection and keep her mouth shut. Unfortunately for Orina, but luckily for the older woman in question, the worker had a conscience and let the story out.

So, what do you suppose has happened to Orina now that the facts have come out? Jail time, maybe? Apparently not. She has been fired from her job. The BC College of Registered Nurses has blackballed her so that she can't work as a nurse for the next five years.
Why this nurse hasn't been charged criminally is not clear to me. It seems to me that losing your job isn't nearly punishment enough for invading the older woman's life, stealing her coin collection (value not stated in the story), manipulating her for Orina's own financial gain, and using her position at work to find and target a likely victim.
When contacted by CBC for a comment, Orina said that she herself was the victim, so clearly she feels no responsibility or remorse.
I, for one, am hoping there is going to be more to this story, including an arrest on criminal charges. Nobody should be able to get away with several acts of fraud and theft against a vulnerable person.
