Surgeon Caught Stealing Equipment From Jackson Memorial Hospital

Jackson Health System has enough money problems at the moment. The last thing it needs is its own surgeons stealing medical equipment from the financially strapped public hospital system. Yet Nir Hus, a surgeon and postgraduate fellow at Jackson Memorial Hospital, has been arrested on charges of repeatedly snatching equipment from the hospital.

Hurs, a 37-year-old resident, was observed on security footage May 21 entering a surgical equipment storage unit carrying an empty bag. He was then spotted leaving with a full bag and his free hand carrying equipment.

When Hurs was spotted, he was asked to justify his loot to security. He told them he needed the equipment to perform surgery. When his story didn't check out, he was asked to return the equipment.

That didn't stop Hurs from trying again. He also took items out of the storage unit another two days. Hurs was also observed near the storage room May 31.

Finally, on June 1, the security office called Hurs in again. Then he admitted in a written statement that he was the man seen on security footage and that he intended to use the supplies for surgery. He explained that when he didn't use all of the equipment, he took the rest home to use at a later date.

On Monday, Hurs returned 34 pieces of equipment he had stolen. He's since been arrested and faces two counts of grand theft.

Great blog!!It is really very shameful that a surgeons has stolen a medical equipment from the financially strapped public hospital system. Such kind of people really deserve very hard sentence and penalty. He should not be released and put into the jail. Medical Equipment

@ JMH_RN Hand in the morphine jar? That's a terrible allegation. Do you like people trashing you online? Telling everyone about you giving BJ's in the call room? Seriously, you should take everyone's member out of your mouth and think before you say things like that.

its amazing how many people are so quick to judge, yet no one is so quick to leave their real names on this forum, makes me believe all of these people are co workers and just feel the need to bash someone that is innocent, in order to make their sad lives feel better..

Wow Hus! Really? Looks like he had his hand in the morphine jar too with those red eyes and pin point pupils. Hope he has a really good attorney with all that evidence. Super nice guy... Very intelligent and a good surgeon (although this was not too smart.) Can't believe this!

Does he not make enough money or he probably has a gold digger for a wife that spends everything he makes.

@telletubby Actually, he is innocent. The person making the allegations was found to be fabricating the entire story and relieved of his position as a security guard.

Due to the vowel to consonant ratio, it must be Cuban.

What does it matter what type of name this low life doctor has. WTF just because he doesn't have a white sounding name, and maybe his ancestors didn't come to America on the Mayflower. That makes him a theft, right tea bagger.
