Broadway Long Term Care Pharmacy Inc.

Oak Park, CA: (Aug-22-07) The US Drug Enforcement Administration brought charges against Broadway Long Term Care Pharmacy Inc., an Oak Park pharmacy, and its owners, alleging that the business kept poor records of how it dispensed drugs. The pharmacy was accused of failing to account for about 30,000 tablets of hydrocodone or Vicodin and 10,000 tablets of Clonazepam or Valium between June 27, 2003, and Aug. 3, 2004. An accountability audit by investigators for that period also uncovered more than 2,800 record keeping deficiencies according to a report compiled by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

As part of a settlement reached, the pharmacy agreed to a $325,000 civil settlement with the government rather than continue to fight allegations that their business kept poor records of how it dispensed drugs. The pharmacy did not admit to the allegations while entering into the settlement agreement. The settlement agreement identified the former owners as Reilly, Aldo Angoletta and David Carroll. Reilly, however, said there was a fourth co-owner, Frank Cable, but he was not mentioned in the settlement agreement. The pharmacy has been under new ownership since December 2005, although Reilly still works there in a senior management position. [SACRAMENTO BEE: DRUG DISPENSE]
