  • CVS Lost More Controlled Substance Doses Last Year Than All Other Mass. Pharmacies Combined

    GBH - 08/24/2021

    When Todd Brown, vice chairman of the Department of Pharmacy and Health Systems Sciences at the Northeastern University School of Pharmacy, was told of the large amount of missing controlled substances at a Massachusetts chain pharmacy, he said. “I know who it is — it’s CVS.”

    “Historically, CVS has had a problem with missing controlled substances for some time now,” Brown said. “I don’t know why they can’t figure out a way to rectify everything. It’s not that complicated. The fact that you’re seeing one company continually having these issues means that they’re not exercising proper control. They’re simply treating the losses as a cost of doing business.”
