Woman Arrested for Posing as Medical Student at Denver Hospital to Treat Patients


A woman from the University of Colorado, Denver, Vanessa Loznik, has been arrested after she pretended to be a medical student and had unauthorized access to patients at Denver Health Medical Center, the hospital on Friday. 

Hospital officials did not categorically state how long Loznik had unauthorized access while doing hands-on procedures on patients.

Denver Health has pulled all student and learner badges until the credentials of those who have them can be duly re-verified.

The hospital said anyone without a hospital badge in a patient area or anyone exhibiting out of the ordinary behavior will be challenged.
Loznik has been forbidden from the hospital, and officials are working with the Denver Police Department and the Denver District Attorney’s Office to take legal action against her.
Loznik describes herself as a research scientist on her Facebook page, and that she only started attending CU Denver studying neurosciences in July of last year.
A source with CU Denver said Loznik is a biology major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and was never employed as a research scientist.
“Leadership at the University of Colorado Denver has been made aware that an undergraduate student currently enrolled at CU Denver had unauthorized access at the Denver Health Medical Center,” the school said in a statement.
“Her involvement at Denver Health was not connected with her coursework at the university. However, we are taking this matter extremely seriously and are actively investigating these allegations.”
