DEA Steps Up Investigations into Drug Thefts at VA Hospitals

pillsBy Steve Neavling

The DEA is launching increased investigations into Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals after a sharp rise in opioid theft, unauthorized drug use by VA employees and missing prescriptions, the Associated Press reports. 

Government data suggests that doctors, nurses and pharmacy staff are stealing prescription for themselves or to sell on the street.

Congressional auditors have found lax tracking of drug supplies at VA hospitals, with some skipping monthly inspections of drug stocks.

The increased scrutiny comes at a time when the country is facing an opioid epidemic.
