So here's a scary thought. You're in a hospital. Need pain killers. But don't get them.

W5's Avery Haines investigates the silent epidemic of medication theft by health care workers known in the industry as 'drug diversion.' Drug-addicted hospital staff are surrounded by powerful narcotics every day. Is there a system in place to get them the help they need?
