...And Then I Don't Feel So Bad...

Sing along to the tune of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music but for the love of Pete don't drink searing hot beverages whilst reading or singing along...

Opened abscesses stuffed full of packing
Burns bad enough for most skin to be lacking
Infected piercings that might have gangrene
Just a small taste of the gross things I've seen

Under-size tube tops on large whiskered women
Multiple ring worms on neglected children
Pants low and saggy on wanna-be thugs
Scarred by the things I see while counting drugs

Wads of gross money from dark sweaty places
Amphetamine junkies with scabs on their faces
The smelling and itching of frumunda cheese
These are all things that the summertime brings

When the narcs are, refill too soon
And the patient is mad
I simply remember
I'm off all next week
And then I don't feel so bad!

(repeat all one more time, with gusto!)

Crashin Your Party

I reached in my mailbox and came back with a letter from the Florida Board of Pharmacy. It was not license renewal time so I tore it open with wonderment and curiosity and was rewarded with fantastically amazing news: New legislature passed for pain clinics.

HB7095 and HB1319 were signed by Governor Scott and went into effect July 1st. The news says Gov Scott's approval ratings suck but I give him a happy two thumbs up! These house bills changed the guidelines for pain management clinics, prescribers, pharmacists, and pharmacies. Both bills, oops laws can be read in their entirety at www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/Legislation/legis.htm along with updates and other pertinent info.

My favorite part:
***Prescribers no longer allowed to dispense CIIs out of their office. This means news crews won't be able to film people injecting oxycontin with insulin syringes in their cars outside the clinics...what will they do for news...

Keep up the good work Florida and hopefully other states will follow your lead!
