Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the court proceeding before U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer occurred via videoconference.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Farrell was a medical resident at Yale New Haven Health (“YNHH”) in its Emergency Department from July 2017 until June 2019.  From March 2018 to March 2019, Farrell wrote more than 50 prescriptions for oxycodone for non-legitimate medical purposes outside the scope of her professional practice in the name of at least five individuals.  Farrell did not see any of the other individuals for any medical purpose at any YNHH facility during the entire period of her residency.  In total, she wrote illegal prescriptions for nearly 4,000 oxycodone tablets during that approximately one-year period.
