A traveling nurse is accused of illegally dispensing hydrocodone and oxycodone from the Samaritan Medical Center PYXIS system.

State Police say 52-year-old Patricia A. Shea, of Arsenal Street in Watertown, is charged with three counts of felony falsifying business records and three counts of unlawfully dispensing a controlled substance.

Shea was arrested on Wednesday and arraigned in the Town of Le Ray Court. She was remanded to the Jefferson County Public Safety building on $1500 bail.

Two other traveling nurses in Watertown were charged with illegally dispensing different drugs earlier this week.
