Pain Medications Stolen from Clients at Auburn Courts
Based on the preponderance of evidence, the allegation of financial exploitation [drug diversion] was substantiated against both the alleged perpetrator (AP) and the facility. Over the course of multiple months in 2017 and 2018, the AP took controlled substances for his/her own personal use. The facility over the course of several years and multiple drug diversion incidents did not improve, change, or enhance practices to reduce or prevent opioid based narcotic medications from being taken. Even after numerous documented performance problems with the AP related to the handling of controlled substances, the facility continued to allow the AP to have access and administer controlled substances to vulnerable adults.
