Tennessee Department of Health says Two Coffee County Medical Workers dealing with Board Action

A Manchester pharmacy technician accused of drug diversion has voluntarily surrendered her license and a Tullahoma physician assistant is also guilty of unprofessional conduct, according to a monthly report from the Tennessee Department of Health.

Manchester Pharmacy Technician Sabrina Gilliam is guilty of drug diversion. Gilliam has voluntarily surrendered her license, according to the department of health.

Drug diversion means that prescription medications are obtained or used illegally.

Drug diversion puts patients at risk for healthcare-associated infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Physician Assistant Lisa Anne Wilson Gressel, of Tullahoma, is guilty of unprofessional conduct; dispensing, prescribing, or otherwise distributing controlled substance not in good faith to relieve pain and suffering, or not to cure an ailment, physical infirmity or disease.

Her license has been placed on probation for 12 months. She also has to pay a civil penalty of $4,000 plus the costs of prosecuting this case.
