“Corners are cut to dispense prescriptions,” CVS employee tells Ohio Board of Pharmacy

After years of buying and closing competitors, CVS understaffing leads to chaos and delays, Ohio regulator says

At least eight CVS pharmacies in Ohio are so understaffed that they have seen rampant turnover, dirty conditions, lack of controls over dangerous drugs and wait times as long as a month for prescriptions, according to reports by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.
