Q&A: Preventing drug theft in hospitals
Several recent cases involving nurses, who allegedly stole drugs from patients and health care facilities, are winding their way through the courts in Minnesota. MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Dr. Keith Berge to find out what is being done to prevent this kind of theft. Dr. Berge is an anesthesiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester leading an effort to address this issue.
He is also the chair of the Chemical Dependency Task Force for the American Society of Anesthesiologists.
