Monologue

Nurse JoAnn Conaway fills in for Dr. Wallach.  JoAnn discusses a recent study that found bad hand writing by doctors on prescription pads is literally killing over 7000 Americans each year.  Contending that it is bad enough that doctors often overprescribe or different drugs having adverse reactions but the fact paitents are dying because of bad hand writing is unforgivable.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and JoAnn Conaway discuss a news story about the maker of Oxycontin being fined.  The FDA approved Oxycontin to be dosed every 12 hours but found the drug maker Purdue Pharma was encouraging doctors to write prescriptions for use every 8 hours.  So the FDA fined Purdue 19.5 million dollars to be divided among 26 different states to help them deal with addictions to the drug.
