Dana Elizabeth Veness, 37, faces multiple charges in three separate cases. The criminal complaint alleged Veness, while working for Aurora Services in a home in Hudson, picked up the prescription Hydrocodone for residents at the facility but failed to deliver the narcotic pain killer on several occasions in 2010 and 2011.

Previous charges brought in connection with the incident were dismissed in April. The three new cases were refiled June 21.
