News Outlook November 08, 2012 -13 Your Hometown Newspaper COMMUNITY Monthly Column from Attorney t, eneral jack t000nway I hke KBML to share their fort to combat prescrip- On September 22, Since House Bill 1 (HB " received an email from a grieving mother in Oldham County who had lost a child to a pre- scription drug overdose. Her daughter died at a friend's house after mix- ing the drug Opana with other substances. She was just 16 years old. I have received many of these letters and grieved with far too many par- ents devastated by the scourge of prescription drug abuse. I vowed to each one of these fami- lies that I would do ev- erything I could to. stop the spread of this epi- demic. Through landmark prescription drug abuse legislation, my Prescrip- tion Drug Diversion Task Force and my Keep Ken- tucky Kids Safe aware- ness initiative, we are making progress. Over the past decade, prescriptions for pow- erful painkillers have soared, making Kentucky the third most medicated state in the nation. Last year, 219 million doses of hydrocodone were dispensed in Kentucky- that's 51 doses for every man, woman and child in this state. While some irrespon- sible doctors handed out pain pills like candy, prescription pain-killer abuse rose 900 percent, overdose deaths doubled and we've seen an alarm- ing 2,400 percent in- crease in the number of babies born addicted to )ain killers. 1) took effect on July 20, 2012, fewer of these high- ly addictive controlled substances are being dispensed, marking the first reduction in a de- cade. Doctors are now required to utilize the Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting (KASPER) system to separate legiti- mate pain sufferers from doctor shoppers. Today, KASPER has nearly 22,000 registered users, requesting more than 18,000 reports each day, most of which are returned in a matter of seconds. Rogue pain clinics are closing up shop in Ken- tucky. Unable to com- ply with the new law, 10 pain management clinics have closed their doors. And the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure (KBML) has disciplined 35 physibians for pre- scribing violations. 10 faced emergency orders of suspension and five surrendered their licens- es. Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) drafted by my office, we are working hand-in- hand with the medical licensure boards, Ken- tucky State Police (KSP) and the Cabinet for Health and Family Ser- vices (CHFS) to share information to identify the most egregious c/s- es of illegal or inappro- priate prescribing. Our MOU created a central- ized database for boards Mayor's Charity Ball  WHEN_: Saturday night, Nov. 10 th TIME: Reception begins at 6 p.m., Music at 7 p.m. WHERE: Crossroads Elementary School CHARITY: Tim's Toy Trot for Tots HONORING: Bath County Veterans TICKET PRICE: $25.00 donation Available at City Hall The "Young at Heart Big Band" will be providing the music. This group consists of 20 members from throughout central Kentucky. The designated charity this year helps to provide toys to underprivileged children in Bath County during the Christmas season. All veterans presentwill be honored and are encouraged to wear something symbolic of their service (hat, uniform, medal, pin, etc.) complaints regarding il- legal or inappropriate prescribing with law en- forcement. The system has processed 41 com- plaints since July. We are also working together to address a few unintended consequenc- es of HB 1 and will be taking a look at exemp- tions for long-term care facilities and in-patient hospital services. Our goal is to weed out the very bad actors and en- sure patients have the best care possible. Additionally, we are continuing to work closely with local law enforcement through my statewide drug diver- sion task force to go after these rogue pain clinics and unscrupulous doc- tors: doctors like Richard I Albert, who prescribed more than 105,000 pre- scription pills per month at his Paintsville, Ky. clinic with little to no ex- amination of his patients. Dr. Albert pled guilty last summer to federal charges of conspiring to illegally distribute and dispense controlled sub- stances. Keep Kentucky Kids Safe Awareness and educa- tion continue to be key components of our el- tion drug abuse. Since I launched the Keep Ken- tucky Kids Safe program in 2010 with concerned parents, state partners and law enforcement agencies, I've warned more than 15,000 middle and high school students across the state about the dangers of abusing prescription pills. We are also listening to what students have to say about this issue through our annual Keep Kentucky Kids Safe video public service announce- ment (PSA) contest. Please encourage amid- dle or high school stu- dent in your life to create a 30-second video PSA and enter it into our com- petition by Dec. 7, 2012. The winner will receive an Apple iPad. Details are available at http:// ag.ky.gov/rxabuse. Finally, if you haven't already done so, please make sure to lock-up and monitor prescrip- tion medications in the home and safely dispose of unneeded medications through drop boxes or take,back events. Working together, we can win the war against prescription drug abuse.
