Lori Petty is trading in prison garb for hospital scrubs.

The Orange Is the New Black actress will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Hawaii Five-0, EW has learned exclusively.

Petty will play Jenny Kitson, a dedicated nurse who has been caring for a comatose John Doe for the past six years. When his identity is revealed to be a potential witness from Danny’s (Scott Caan) last case before he joined Five-0, Jenny helps Danny keep him safe from those looking to silence him forever.

The actress, whose TV credits also include Gotham and Prison Break, will appear in an episode slated for May.

Hawaii Five-0 airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
