Calgary pharmacist charged with stealing 33,000 pills was suspended for similar incidents decade ago


A pharmacist charged with stealing more than 33,000 pills from the Safeway pharmacy in Okotoks, Alta., was disciplined 10 years earlier after even larger quantities of narcotics went missing from a Shoppers Drug Mart in Calgary and a Pharmasave in Canmore. An investigation by Shoppers Drug Mart "showed that this volume of narcotics had been ordered and could not be accounted for," reads the college's written decision. "The losses encountered by Shoppers Drug Mart at this store stopped after [Rogalsky] resigned in December 2003 and have not occurred since," it adds. "There were no similar losses at the Pharmasave pharmacy after [Rogalsky] ceased employment at the pharmacy," it adds. In response, the college suspended her registration for four years, with a retroactive start date of Nov. 1, 2004.
