The allegations against her followed a State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy investigation into improper handling of controlled substances at the jail from 2011 to 2015.

In July, the state pharmacy board reached a settlement agreement with NaphCare that called for the company to pay the board $7,000, provide more staff training and remove Ellis as the person responsible for compliance with the jail's pharmacy license.
“NaphCare agrees to never use Dr. Ellis as a Responsible Person on any of its Ohio licenses,” the agreement states.
As part of the agreement, the company neither admitted nor denied fault.
Bradley Cain, spokesman and general counsel of Alabama-based NaphCare, said in an interview Wednesday that the company was unaware of the allegations against Ellis but that changes were made to address the issues identified by the pharmacy board.

"We have made implementation of changes based on the settlement agreement we entered into with the Ohio Board of Pharmacy," Cain said. "Everything outlined in that agreement we're in compliance with today."
Cain said the company has contracts with jails in Montgomery, Franklin and Hamilton counties and has had no problems at other facilities.
Ellis resigned from NaphCare on July 31 and is no longer allowed access to the jail, according to Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office officials.
No formal action has been taken against Ellis’ medical license, according to the State Medical Board of Ohio. Medical board records say she has had a license since 1989 and has specialties in general practice and pediatrics.
