Anonymous Tip & Internal Audit Identify Controlled Substance Discrepancies at Trauma Star

MONROE COUNTY, FL –  Last week, Monroe County Fire Rescue received an anonymous tip and took immediate action upon discovering documentation discrepancies in the Trauma Star controlled substance logs. The prompt investigation resulted in the immediate removal of an employee from duty.

“The risk was identified and isolated without any disruption of service to our community or the Trauma Star operation,” said Monroe County Fire Chief Steve Hudson. “We took swift action and do not condone any misconduct from our employees. Trauma Star will continue to provide our community the highest quality of service.”

Monroe County Fire Rescue is working closely with Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in the employee’s ongoing criminal investigation and immediately implemented improvements to the documentation process for a more secure controlled substance tracking module.
