Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Houston Chronicle: "Joanne Ayoube dutifully worked for a month as a physical therapy intern at a Sugar Land hospital, filling out medical records and working with patients beginning in April, prosecutors said.

Four weeks into her 'internship,' Ayoube checked one of her patients with dementia, 95-year-old Jack Fine, out of the hospital. The two went to his home, and she moved in, an arrangement that allegedly netted Ayoube tens of thousands of dollars.

It was a lot of cash for a resourceful 30-year-old woman who had no credentials, documentation or authorization to work in the hospital, authorities said Thursday after Ayoube was charged with bilking Fine out of $65,000."
