12,000 physicians caught aiding in the opioid epidemic by violating policy while prescribing painkillers

While the federal government and naturopathic healers everywhere try to battle against the widening opioid epidemic that is affecting millions of people, a significant number of physicians, it has been discovered, aren’t really assisting the effort as much as they’re supposed to be.

Fox News Health reports some 12,000 physicians in the state of Ohio alone who are supposed to be checking their patients’ prescription histories – aren’t.

Doctors are expected to consult a state-maintained web site before they recommend any opioid-based painkillers for their patients. But a new audit has found that thousands appear to be violating the policy that is designed to help stem the opioid epidemic.

One-third of all doctors in the state may be violating policy

The audit, completed in August by the state’s Pharmacy Board, pinpointed the doctors who either were not yet registered on the site or failed to properly use it. In recent days the investigating panel handed the list over to the Ohio Medical Board, the licensing agency for physicians. The board has since sent each offending physician a letter warning them of the potential violations.

The 12,000 figure represents some one-third of all doctors in the state.

The audit and resultant warnings to doctors come as Ohio deals with its own opioid crisis, in which eight people a day die from overdoses. Part of that, officials said, is because of ready access to prescription opioid painkillers.

Tessie Pollack, a Medical Board spokesperson, said that her organization’s priority will be some 45 physicians who have reportedly been providing painkillers to more than 200 patients during August without performing the required checks.

Fox News noted that the Pharmacy Board audit discovered that the top 25 doctors on the list did not run the required report on some 7,500 patients. This list included one doctor who handed out prescription painkillers to 705 patients in a single month without doing a single required check.

Pollack noted that the most serious violators may face a suspension or revoked license, along with probation and fines. The board noted that many of the violations may turn out to be mild, so the board wants to enjoin its enforcement crackdown with a program to education physicians, in order to help them understand how to use the site.

Officials with the Ohio State Medical Association, which represents doctors, say they don’t believe that 12,000 doctors are in violation of the law.

“We’re certainly supportive of the Medical and Pharmacy boards taking these periodic looks and making sure people are in compliance, but it’s really a checks-and-balances kind of thing,” Reggie Fields, an association spokesman, told Fox News Health.

He added that the medical community understands the size and scope of the opiate addiction epidemic in Ohio, and he says he supports the rule requiring tracking of prescription painkillers.

‘We need all hands on deck’

The Food and Drug Administration, on its web site, acknowledged the opioid epidemic and said it has developed “a comprehensive action plan” to reduce opioid over-prescribing and abuse. Part of that plan includes gathering data on painkiller prescriptions.

“As part of this plan, the agency is committing to work more closely with its advisory committees before making critical product and labeling decisions; enhancing safety labeling; requiring new data; and seeking to improve treatment of both addiction and pain,” the agency said.

Dr. Mark Hurst, the medical director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addition Services, said the problem of opioid abuse won’t be solved “unilaterally” by a single entity or agency.

“It requires communities, it requires families, it requires individuals, it requires schools,” he said, Fox News Health reported in a separate story. “If we’re really going to make good progress and sustain progress on this, we need all hands on deck.”

Thousands Of American Doctors Caught Sexually Abusing Their Patients…& More Than HALF Are Still Practicing

[Editor’s Note]

What follows is very disturbing.  Just giving fair warning.

_________________________________________________________________

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in its own special report, doctors all over the country are betraying their patients’ trust by engaging in physical and verbal acts of sexual abuse. And like the priest scandal, many of those doctors are allowed to continue practicing.

In January 2002, a Boston Globe report – the first in a lengthy, Pulitzer Prize-winning series – shocked the world of Catholicism to its core when it revealed that a beloved local parish priest had sexually abused choir boys for over three decades.

What’s worse, the Globe reported that the offending priest, Fr. John J. Geoghan, was known by the Catholic hierarchy to be sexually abusive of children, but was moved from parish to parish in a concerted effort to hide his behavior. From there, the story grew, and more priests were eventually identified.

The same pattern appears to be repeating itself in the medical community. As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in its own special report, doctors all over the country are betraying their patients’ trust by engaging in physical and verbal acts of sexual abuse. And like the priest scandal, many of those doctors are allowed to continue practicing.

In conducting its national investigation, the paper found more than 3,100 cases of sexually abusive doctor-initiated patient contact, 2,400 of whom were disciplined, but not always run out of the industry.

A bevy of cases

In Missouri, one physician asked a woman who was badly injured in a sexual assault if she liked being tied up and urinated on, and whether she was easily stimulated.

In Texas, a doctor fondled female patients’ breasts during exams and pressed his erections up against them.

In New Mexico, for years a physician performed genital exams under anesthesia that she claimed were part of necessary screening for ear, nose and throat patients, even though the patients had not given their consent.

In California, a male psychiatrist put his hand down a female patient’s blouse, took out one of her breasts and put his mouth on it, while exposing himself and ejaculating into her hand.

In Kentucky, a male doctor examining an infection on a female patient’s abdomen told her she had sexy underwear before he rubbed her genital area and placed his mouth on it.

The paper noted further:

In each of these cases, described in public records, the doctors either acknowledged what they’d done or authorities, after investigating, believed the accusations. While the scale and scope of the physicians’ misdeeds varied tremendously, all were allowed to keep their white coats and continue seeing patients, as were hundreds of others like them across the nation.

Some of the worst abuse included rapes by OB/GYNs, psychiatrists who seduced vulnerable patients, fondling by anesthesiologists and ophthalmologists, and outright molestations by pediatricians and radiologists. What’s more, the victims were diverse: babies and 80-year-old women; jail inmates; drug addicts; even survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

While some physicians were disciplined after a single episode of sexual misconduct, more than half were not, the paper found.

Having a license issued by government is no guarantee of protection

How does this happen? How are doctors permitted to get away with such regular abuse of their patients?

Investigators found a number of reasons. Some patients stay silent over shame. Some say they don’t speak up because they don’t think their word will be believed over the testimony of a physician.

Another reason is that nursing and support staff either condone the abuse or don’t reveal it, essentially making themselves accessories.

The investigation also found that hospitals and medical organizations do what the Catholic Church did with some priests for decades: They quietly move doctors around or push them out without reporting them to police, in an attempt to protect their own reputations. Sometimes, like the Church, they simply brush off accusations.

Offenders are also often given second chances by medical review boards.

Talk radio host Ronald Scott Bell talked recently about the Journal-Constitution’s report, noting in particular that it well-justified his long-held view that government licensure is no guarantee of competence or safety. He’s right of course; just because someone has to obtain a government-issued license or permit does not mean he or she won’t abuse someone’s trust.

While the vast majority of doctors are not predators, the paper noted, you can improve your chances of staying safe in a number of ways, like by avoiding the need to visit the doctor in the first place, with better nutrition.

7 Things Better Than Drugs For Health & Healing

7 Natural Alternatives Better than Drugs for Health and Healing

Natural medicine is an amazing field, full of inspiring stories and an ever-accumulating body of scientific research to support its increasingly popular view of health.

In fact, at GreenMedInfo.com we specialize in dredging up from the National Library of Medicine’s 23-million citation deep, seemingly oceanic database, highly promising clinical pearls indicating not only the value of natural substances in disease prevention and treatment, but sometimes their clear superiority versus drugs. What’s not to like about that?

But our project, and natural medicine at large, is not without its challenges, one of which is that it is quite easy to get caught up in the allopathic model of treating surface symptoms, albeit naturally.  This ‘natural allopathy,’ if you will, entices people to look for ‘natural cure’ shortcuts and Band-Aids instead of address the deeper issues associated with avoiding, limiting and addressing environmental exposures, reducing stress, and improving diet and exercise, for instance. In a culture that pops hundreds of millions of doses of drugs and supplements on a daily basis, it is increasingly difficult to break free from the powerful psychological pull to ingest something — be it a natural or synthetic “magic pill”; its effects real or imagined — instead of address the underlying problems.

This is also why part of our project is to identify peer-reviewed published research from biomedical journals indicating that there are therapeutic actions, from walking to yoga, dietary changes to exercising, that are at least as effective and often superior to conventional drug-based treatments.

So, here is a good smattering of data that edifies the notion that sometimes, we do not need to “take anything” to stimulate our body’s innate self-healing abilities, as non-invasive therapies – including doing nothing (i.e. watchful waiting) — can accomplish favorable results:

  • Colored light versus Benzyl peroxide for Acne: A combination of blue and red light irradiation therapy was found superior to 5% benzoyl peroxide in treating acne vulgaris without side effects. [i] Another study found blue light irradiation therapy alone as effective as 5% benzyl peroxide in the treatment of acne, but with fewer side effects.[ii]
  • Dietary changes versus Drug Treatment for Hypertension: A high fiber, low sodium, low fat diet is superior to the beta-blocker drug metoprolol in hypertensive type 2 diabetic subjects. [iii]
  • Acupuncture and moxibustion versus pharmaceutical treatment for Sudden Deafness: Acupuncture and moxibustion therapy was found to be superior in treating sudden deafness as compared with the routine drug-based therapy.[iv]
  • Acupuncture versus Drug Treatment for treating Migraines: Acupuncture treatment exhibited greater effectiveness than drug therapy with flunarizine in the first months of therapy for migraine and with superior tolerability.[v]
  • Dietary changes versus high-dose steroid for Crohn’s disease: An elemental diet is as effective as high dose steroid treatment in improving Crohn’s disease activity in children, while superior in supporting the growth of the children.[vi] Two additional studies found similar results in adults with mild-to-moderately active Crohn’s disease.[vii] [viii]
  • Aromatherapy massage versus Tylenol for Menstrual Pain: Aromatherapy massage on the abdomen was found superior to Tylenol for alleviating menstrual pain in high school girls.[ix]
  • Hypnosis versus Valium for Anxiety: Hypnosis during embryo transfer is as effective as diazepam in terms of pregnancy ratio and anxiolytic effects, but with fewer side effects.[x]
  • Yoga technique versus Antidepressant Drug for Depression: Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (a rhythmic breathing technique) was found superior to the drug imipramine in the treatment of depression.[xi]
  • Yogic intervention versus Drug treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Yogic intervention consisting of poses and breathing exercises was found superior to conventional treatment in diarrhea-predominant IBS.[xii]
  • Foot Reflexology versus Drug treatment for Insomnia: Foot reflexology (Wooden needle technique) was found superior to the drug Alprazolam in the treatment of insomnia.[xiii]
  • Watchful waiting versus Drug treatment for childhood Ear Infection: Watchful waiting compares favorably to immediate antibiotic treatment for some children with non-severe acute otitis media.[xiv]

    This sampling reflects only a minor subset of data within our Therapeutic Actions index, one of six databases on the GreenMedInfo.com open access site.  Presently, we have 216 distinct actions indexed, which can be viewed on our Therapeutic Actions Display Page. You may be surprised how simple conscious acts such as chewing your food thoroughly, laughing or a walk in the forest can produce healing responses within the human body.

Analyzing Human Actions – Orlando Shooting

“A gun in the hands of a bad man is a very dangerous thing.  A gun in the hands of a good person is no danger to anyone except the bad guys.”
-Charlie Heston

The moral fiber of the country will be tested with this latest shooting.

Allegedly, 50 people or so died from this rather unfortunate event.  My condolences definitely go out to those who lost lives, their families & loved ones.

However, let’s put this shooting into context.

The Second Amendment is the Amendment that protects all others, especially vs. tyranny.  Without it, all we would have is the illusion of freedom.  It’s bad enough that people need licenses in most places that allow [allow? – thought we were free?] concealed carry.   Now, the comptrollers, and especially Hillary Clinton will begin wanting to push gun control as she has in the past, and as she’s been expected to do, that’s what Clinton’s do, after all.

So we’ve established what Hillary Clinton will do, which is ask that everyone hand over their firearms.

Ruminate about it.  A criminal carries out a shooting.  But, in the establishment’s warped mind, law-abiding citizens are the ones that should pay the price…

Does that even make sense?  Why should people that did not commit any crimes and are law abiding citizens be punished for what one alleged person did?  That’s preposterous.

To get to the core of the matter, let’s compare some numbers.

As of 2013, according to FactCheck.org, Homicide deaths made up 11,208 of firearm deaths.  That’s nigh 31 people dying daily due to firearm-related homicide carried out by criminals.

Please keep in mind, there are tens of MILLIONS OF FIREARMS in the hands of responsible gun owners.  If all gun owners were problematic, everyday would be hell on Earth in the United States.  Such is not the case however, and hasn’t been countless decades.

In any case, in regards to mindless death, let’s harpoon onto something else that’s been plaguing the populace for decades.

It was reported recently by the British Medical Journal that PREVENTABLE MEDICAL ERRORS ARE THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES.

That, conservatively, adds up to 400,000 deaths a year, EVERY YEAR
.  Or 1096 people dying every day, like clock-work.

Comparing the daily death tolls:

31 people being killed by criminals daily – NOT law abiding citizens.

1096 people being killed by preventable medical errors by the medical establishment.

Yearly:

11,208 deaths from homicides involving firearms.

400,000 deaths from preventable medical errors [conservative estimate].

*** The 400,000 deaths does not include the fact that the medical system injures 1.5 Million more annually, as of 2006***

Of course, we won’t hear the above verifiable facts from the media.  That’s not convenient to the establishment.

But they will surely use a very unfortunate shooting for their gain.  After all, establishment crony Rahm Emanuel said it best, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

Simply stated, they will use that unfortunate event to push every single tyrannical agenda they can, and take away more rights away from the populace.

Knowing what we know, which one is a bigger problem?  The 11,208 yearly deaths via homicide shootings by criminals, or 400,000 yearly deaths from preventable medical errors [conservative estimate] that do not include the 1.5 Million more annually?  The numbers aren’t even close.

If people are getting up in arms about the shooting, why aren’t they up in arms about the hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths by medical doctors?

Simple.  Their reality is carved out by the mainstream media, and they gobble it up without a second thought.  Since most people think the world is what the box tells them, they realize NOT what the box does NOT mention, and they never question it.

Why would they?

Cracking the reality egg would make people come to terms with many uncomfortable circumstances.

An incisive individual would have to come to terms that reality isn’t what they were taught all along.

Thus, as individuals we have a choice, we either see reality for what it is, or we allow others to duplicitously construct a shadow of reality for us.

One reality makes us a slave to the system and all its agendas.

The other allows our freedom.

Which reality do you live in?
