Cleveland nurse has medical gear stolen from car

A nurse faces price gouging to replace her items after a bag of equipment is stolen from her car.

CLEVELAND — Jamee Byrd-Beasley has been a nurse for 33 years and woke up Monday morning to realize her car had been broken into.

“Then I check my trunk and saw that my bag with all my nursing supplies and a gym bag was stolen,” says Byrd-Beasley.

Thankfully she has a surveillance camera that caught everything. The video is grainy, but it shows a person rummaging through her car.

“It still hurts me that someone would do that to me,” says Byrd-Beasley.

As she sorts the supplies she still has, Jamee is now facing price gouging in order to replenish her stolen equipment.

“I bought a thermometer it was like $100. You know I ordered some other equipment online which was like $60, but I’ve spent like over $200 today,” says Byrd-Beasley.

The police report details multiple items taken that she’s now trying to replace.

“I need stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, glucometers,” says Byrd-Beasley.

Though upsetting, the incident won’t hold her back from the job she loves. She also has a message for her home healthcare clients.

“Once I can be totally back to providing the services I do provide, then I will, but at this point in time, it’s just a struggle,” says Byrd-Beasley.

A GoFundMe account has been established for her, click here for the link.
