Medford, OR – According to the police officials, last month, authorities were contacted by officials from Asante in regard to a former employee that they believe was involved in the theft of controlled substances prescribed to patients.
Additionally, there was concern that this behavior resulted in adverse patient care, though the extent of the impact on those patients is yet to be determined.
MPD is actively working on investigating these claims.
MPD has received numerous calls from individuals asking if they or a family member have been impacted by the suspected actions of the former Asante employee.
Asante has informed MPD that they have identified the involved patients and have notified or are in the process of notifying them or their families.
