Oxycontin ring based in ER?

More on the Oxycontin accusations in PA, from the Daily Courier:

Egleston, a former emergency room doctor at Aliquippa Community Hospital, would meet patients in the emergency room’s waiting area, take them to a private room and issue a prescription, Corbett said.

Agents were tipped to the ring when nurses at Aliquippa said they became suspicious because some patients would come to the emergency room asking to see Egleston for treatment but leave if he wasn’t working, according to a presentment by a state grand jury, which investigated the ring for nine months, Corbett said.
