ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- (KDVR) -- Swedish Medical Center is looking into a possible drug diversion or the stealing of narcotic pain medication intended for patients by a former employee, the hospital announced Wednesday afternoon.

The medical center would not confirm the identity of the employee but said the surgical technician was removed immediately after the alleged suspicious activity came to light.

The surgical technician's actions might have put some surgery patients at risk for exposure to HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C viruses.
