    The New Hampshire Board of Nursing has suspended the license of a registered nurse following a hospital complaint that she diverted or attempted to divert controlled drugs.

    The board's action Friday regarding Kerry Bridges is in response to a complaint received from Concord Hospital alleging that she also documented administration of narcotics without a doctor's order, and had missing or unaccounted for narcotics.

    A board hearing to determine whether she engaged in professional misconduct is scheduled for Friday, June 5.

    A phone listing for Bridges, who is licensed to practice in Maine and Massachusetts, could not be found. The board said Wednesday she was seeking an attorney.
