A nurse in Clarence has surrendered her license and two other Western New Yorkers have been disciplined by state officials.
They were among 39 professionals around the state recently disciplined by the state Department of Education's Board of Regents. In total, two licenses were revoked, six were surrendered and 31 other disciplinary actions were taken against licensed professionals in New York state.
The penalty indicated for each case relates solely to the misconduct set forth in that particular case.
Shelly Rene Trombetto, a licensed practical nurse, admitted to stealing a prescription narcotic pill from her employer for her personal use, the board said. Her application to surrender her license was approved.
A year ago, Trombetto received a one-year stayed suspension, one year of probation and a $500 fine following a Driving While Intoxicated conviction, according to board records.
Other local disciplinary actions:
• Scott Anthony Accordino, a physical therapist in West Seneca, received one year of stayed suspension, one year of probation and a $500 fine.
• Mary Halcyone Jensen Fales, a veterinarian in Falconer, received one year of stayed suspension, one year of probation and a $500 fine.
