Bad career move

UCLA Med Student Arrested For Allegedly Stealing From Dying Woman

Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center
By Patrick Healy, Sept. 12,

A medical student faces felony charges for the theft of an iPad that belonged to a cancer patient at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

The case represents a tragic intersection of the lives of two young women in their early 30s.

Hospitalized with an aggressive form of breast cancer, keeping her iPad at bedside, Natalie Packer went into cardiac arrest. It was during the Code Blue response to try to revive her that the iPad disappeared, according to her family.

Months later, authorities found the iPad in the possession of Virginia Nguyen, 32, identified as a third-year student at UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine. She has pleaded not guilty to charges of petty theft, grand theft of lost property, and also of computer access and fraud.

She made a brief court appearance Friday morning and was ordered to return Oct. 3.
