CVS Pharmacists Suspended & 3 Walgreens Pharmacies Face Suspension

Some Walgreens pharmacies in Florida have a lot to prove to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Recently, three Florida Walgreens stores face suspension for failing to report suspicious pharmaceutical orders for controlled substances.

The Walgreens pharmacies in Oviedo, Ft. Pierce and Hudson, Florida have to convince the DEA that they should be allowed to continue filling prescriptions for oxycodone and hydrocodone. In order to do this, the stores have to prove that their pharmacists and technicians condemn prescription-drug addiction and are genuinely serving the community. Just three months ago, a Walgreens distribution center in Jupiter was suspended after the DEA investigated the company’s policies.

This news follows that of two Florida CVS pharmacies losing their controlled substance licenses in September due to dispensing concerns about the painkiller oxycodone. According to the DEA, these two Florida CVS pharmacies had failed to monitor sales of oxycodone and were filling too many prescriptions for this drug. The DEA stated that “the average pharmacy in the United States in 2011 ordered approximately 69,000 oxycodone dosage units, these two pharmacies, located about 5.5 miles apart, together ordered more than three million dosage units during the same year.”

Additionally, another case in Florida has recently been brought to light about a Rocklege pharmacist at a Florida CVS pharmacy who was suspended by the Florida Department of Health for filling fake oxycodone prescriptions. After an anonymous phone call was made alleging that a CVS pharmacist and technician were working together to fill false prescriptions for controlled substances, an investigation began. This investigation led to the suspension of a pharmacist, Lindsay Marie Wolfe.
