ATLANTA — Two pharmacy employees at Emory University Hospital Midtown illegally diverted more than 1 million doses of controlled drugs in a scheme that lasted more than four years, according to a Georgia Board of Pharmacy consent order.

Details of the thefts came to light in the consent order with the Atlanta hospital, finalized last month.

The stolen drugs included Alprazolam, known generally as Xanax, which is used to treat anxiety disorders. Pain medications – hydrocodone and codeine products – were also diverted.
