Ohio pharmacy board members seem skeptical of CVS claims

A disciplinary hearing related to understaffing at some CVS pharmacies in Ohio didn’t come to a conclusion Wednesday. But members of the Ohio Board of Pharmacy seemed skeptical of some of claims attorneys for the corporation were making.

The hearing, which began on Tuesday, was specifically about problems Board of Pharmacy inspectors found at a CVS in Canton when they visited on Sept. 13, 2021. They found a pharmacy so understaffed that the inside counter was closed, stock — including controlled substances — hadn’t been shelved, and customers had to wait in a drive-through line that could take more than an hour to get through and still end with patients not getting their medicine.
