The lock-in program would help lower the amount of people abusing prescription medication. The lock-in program would also ease the minds of physicians and pharmacists who are fighting a constant battle of keeping track of patients on controlled medications. Even though Americans will pay taxes on Medicaid regardless, many people would feel more at ease knowing their money wasn’t going toward funding the habits of drug abusers. Any patient that seeks assistance from Medicaid should be entered into the lock-in program to help lower the amount of controlled substance abuse, to ease the minds of doctors and pharmacists, and to ensure American tax dollars are spent more
He is not only informally treating and collecting specimen from his daughter, but he is also not documenting any of the treatments that he is doing. This is a major problem and could be subject to intervention by the law. Joe is risking his medical credibility by doing this for his daughter. He is also performing these tests without the direct supervision of the supervising physician, which goes against the code of conduct (2013). If a physician assistant violates laws that vary from state to state, the physician assistant could be subject to license suspension or being
In Madeleine Peiner Cosman (2005) her journal states “by default we grant health passes to illegal aliens, yet illegal aliens harbor fatal diseases that American medicine fought and vanquished long ago”. Generally health care isn’t available for immigrants so health risks are be at a higher rate. They have to pay hospital visits and checkups out of pocket which can be extremely difficult because they are
I am so blessed not to have experienced what Jo Goodwin Parker went though. As I read her definition on poverty, I could see the devastating effects that this had on her and her children. Three affects that Jo Parker endured during these hard times were neglected heath issues, malnutrition, and no luxuries. First of all, they had neglected heath issues that most would consider minor, such as, red and cracked hands from not having any hand lotion. She once saved her money for two months to purchase Vaseline for her dry hands.
(News-Item) In a poll, that has been taken by Public Agenda on the subject of drug testing for welfare recipients show that 68% said yes, 27% said no and 5% not sure. Even, though, there are some people that are out raged and call this unconstitutional for an example Kimberley Davis, Director of Social Services for Operation Breakthrough, said this sends a damaging message. "All this does is perpetuating the stereotype that low-income people are lazy, and if all they did was pick themselves up from the bootstraps then the country would not be in the mess it is in.” (Service)That is not true it is that tax payers work hard for their money. It should be certain that the money going to help the needy not support drug
There are many ways in which prescription fraud can occur. Because of the plethora of ways, pharmacists must be alert and responsible in their actions. Many seem to believe that electronic prescribing has been found to reduce the number of errors and statistics and data reflects that. America cannot be ignorant in this matter. The new electronic system not being implemented is like going through life with a contagious deadly disease, you have the money for the cure, but yet you complain, sulk, and feel sorry for yourself instead of going to get the cure.
Customs officers are expected to do their job and put a stop to the drug trafficking but the temptation of making some extra money may be extremely strong. Money is the root of all evil and a lot of people are very selfish. For an example, they know the effects drugs have on a society as a whole but if the price is high enough, they may turn their head and allow the drugs to be brought in. Not only is this wrong, it is damaging to everyone. “It is believed that the loss of the drug trafficking industry in Mexico would cause that country’s economy to shrink by over 63 percent” (DrugAbuse.net, (2012), para.
It is odd to me that with numbers such as these there are not major reform bills going through to curb this problem. We have government run departments such as OSHA telling companies where to store paint and how to revamp a mattress properly when reselling it yet we are not stopping this huge slap in the face to our justice system. People are openly breaking the law, American laws, and it drains our economy and then to make matters worse we spend more by incarcerating them here in the U.S. instead of sending them back to their home country or even worse have work prisons where they can work to earn back the money they wasted that once came from Joe the working man. There are a number of things that could happen that yes, would cost money to implement but they would not cost what the current cost is to educate, feed and care for the illegal immigrants. Amnesty is over rated and it is killing our country, economy and culture.
Activists on Prescription Drug Abuse Around the world there are so many teens looking to get drugs. A big part of them abuse prescription drugs for a non-medical purpose to alter the way they think or use their mind, and it can even leave them in a dependent state (NIDA, 2008). They choose most prescription drugs mainly for how accessible they are. They go into any drug store and can pick up even a cold medicine to go on a trip. The reason it is such a big problem is because it can lead to over dosing and possible dying.
Illicit drug users need more help than simply abstaining from the use of drugs to overcome their addiction. The use of federal money to pay for sterile syringes is still prohibited, but funds can now be used to pay for other aspects of NEPs, including personnel, vehicles, gas, rent, and other expenditures needed to keep NEPs operational (Weinmeyer, 2016). The war against drugs is the main reason why the use of NEPs and MAT programs are incredibly perplexing. The ideology of assisting an individual in maintaining the euphoric feeling of illicit drugs or providing hypodermic needles to successfully administer drugs contradicts the campaign of “just say no”. The use of drugs is illegal, yet the government provides assistance with drug use.
