ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany woman accused of impersonating a nurse is free on bond.

Dougherty County Jail officials say 47-year-old Robin Jones was released on a $10,000 bond shortly after surrendering Monday to sheriff's deputies.

Dougherty County health department officials are working to identify patients whom she may have treated.

She was a secretary at the health department but investigators say over several months she pretended to be a nurse, giving diagnoses and prescribing medication.

Health officials know of five patients. They're looking for more.

"We need to make sure that if they came in for certain tests, that we do those tests and take care of whatever the issue was," said Dr. Jacqueline Grant, Southwest Health District Director.

Jones was fired in October.

She's charged with three counts of forgery and one count of prescribing dangerous medications.

If you think Jones treated you call the Dougherty County health department.
