Pyxis ES Question-Cancel/Remove

I am looking to see if there is an easy way to monitor for "Cancel Remove" transactions in Pyxis ES. About 10 years ago I remember at a former facility I worked at we were able to catch a nurse using this function to open a drawer to a premixed bag of PCA medication and removing 1-2 ml's at a time to divert the medication. Was wondering how others are monitoring for this to prevent diversion of types of products that could be tampered with and possibly go unnoticed?

Thank you for any help with this!
