Narcotics dispensed by physicians are killing people
The WC industry has long pointed out this issue, which is at long last getting 'main stream' medical provider attention locally. We have seen so much injury and death following what appeared to have been in appropriate dispensing of narcotic medications (but hey, we are only claims adjusters, right?). Hopefully this discussion can open up across all industries and the movement can be spread countrywide. According to the article, prescription drug abuse contributed to the deaths of more Montana residents in 2012 than motor vehicle crashes, homicides, meth, heroin and cocaine combined. Chilling statistic.
