Pain management clinic gets tough on patients

PURPOSE HE WAS A GOOD KID. HE WAS OUR ONLY CHILD. CHERYL PLACEK WISHES THAT HER SON DANIEL, A 28 YEAR OLD YEAR NAVY VETERAN , HAD BEEN MONITORED MORE CLOSELY WHEN HE WAS SEEING DR. GOSY FOR BACK PAIN. HE WAS PRESCRIBED AN OPIATE. AND I NEVER KNEW WHAT AN OPIATE WAS. SHE SAYS HE BECAME ADDICTED. THAT’S WHEN DR. GOSY REPORTEDLY PUT HIM ON SUBOXONE , WHICH IS USED TO TREAT OPIATE ADDICTION. BUT CHERYL SAYS BY THAT TIME IT WAS TOO LATE. AND THATS WHEN THE PROBLEMS.

BEGAN EVEN MORE IS WHEN HE WENT INTO WITHDRAWAL. WE COULD SEE UPON WITHDRAWAL IS WHEN THE SUICIDAL THOUGHTS WERE THERE. LAST JANUARY DANIEL ENDED HIS LIFE WHILE A PATIENT AT THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION HOSPITAL. THAT FIRST NIGHT HE WAS THERE HE HUNG HIMSELF IN THE BUILDING. SHES UPSET WITH THE PRACTICE AND THINKS ITS THE MEDICATIONS THAT LED TO THE SUICIDE WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT. DR. WELL IM SORRY ABOUT THE LOSS. HIPPA LAWS PREVENT THE DOCTOR FROM ADDRESSING SPECIFIC CASES BUT HE SAID IN GENERAL.

THE MEDICATIONS IF MONITORED PRESCRIBED CORRECTLY TEND NOT TO BE THE SOURCE OF ALL EVILS SUCH BAD OUTCOMES I SUSPECT IS DUE TO A MULTIPLICITY OF FACTORS STAND UP NEWS 4 HAS BEEN COVERING THE TOPIC OF PAINKILLER ABUSE AND ADDICTION EXTENSIVELY AND WE’VE SEEN IT CAN BE CONTROVERSIAL. AVI ISRAEL ALSO LOST A SON TO SUICIDE AFTER HE BECAME ADDICTED TO PRESCIPTION DRUGS WE’VE LOST OUR KIDS AND HOPEFULLY WERE MAKING AN IMPACT AND WERE MAKING A CHANGE. NOW ITS UP TO DOCTORS TO DO THEIR.

PART. DOCTORS ,PARENTS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DO AGREE ON ONE CONCEPT THAT WLL BE AN IMPORTANT PREVENTITIVE MECHANISM FOR PRESCRIPTION ABUSE I STOP. IT GIVES THEM THE ABILITY TO TAKE THE PATIENTS NAME, RUN IT INTO THE I STOP SYSTEM AND ENSURE THAT PATIENT IS GETTING THE MEDICATION IN A PROPER FORMAT. I STOP CREATES A REAL TIME, ONLINE DATABASE FOR DOCTORS AND PHARMACISTS TO REPORT AND TRACK.SO THEY KNOW THEIR PATIENTS’ HISTORY. MORE INFORMATION COULD LESSEN THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ABUSE. JUST USE MORE DESCRITION. MY SON NEVER HAD A SURGERY HE HAD.
