In three counties

A Piedmont woman arrested by South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) on Nov. 15 is facing charges in three counties including identity fraud, neglect of a vulnerable adult and unlicensed practice as a registered nurse.
Kimberly Faye Campbell, 48, of Piedmont, is facing charges in the counties of Anderson, Pickens and Greenville for: Identity Fraud, 3 counts; Neglect of a Vulnerable Adult, 3 counts and Unlicensed Practice as a Registered Nurse, 3 counts.
According to warrants, on or about June 8, 2021 through Aug. 6, 2021, Campbell did obtain employment under false pretenses at Easley Place, 706 Hwy. 8 Easley using fraudulent nursing license information. While there she did commit the crime of neglect of a vulnerable adult. While her license to practice as a licensed practical nurse, (LPN) was suspended, the defendant did treat and take care of patients without a license to do so. Due to the patients being residents of a nursing care facility, they are classified as vulnerable adults under SC law.
From Aug. 4, 2021 through Jan. 31, 2022, Campbell obtained employment under false pretenses at Powdersville Post-Acute, 1850 Crestview Road, Easley in Pickens County.
Campbell also obtained employment through Simpler Staffing Solutions and was sent to Poinsett Rehabilitation, located at 8 North Texas Avenue in Greenville, where she treated patients with a suspended license
SLED was requested to investigate by the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (SC LLR).
Campbell was booked at the Anderson County Detention Center, followed by the Pickens County Detention Center and the Greenville County Detention Center.
The case will be prosecuted by the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office.
