Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
The recent Florida Medical Examiners Report for 2011 reported another year of record deaths attributed to drugs ("fdle.state.fl.us/Content/getdoc/9256e6e4-67bf-4a02-a7c6-3f1e93fde6c1/2010DrugReport.aspx") The Prescription Addiction Radio Show and Stoppnow question if the Florida Board of Medicine has fulfilled their responsibilities of protecting the citizens of Florida from doctors who too frequently prescribe prescription narcotics. The radio show on Sunday night will review the following sincerity of the following statements from the Florida Board of Medicine:
“MISSION: To protect and promote the health of all residents and visitors in the state through organized state and community efforts, including cooperative agreements with counties.
VISION: A healthier future for the people of Florida.
PURPOSE: To protect the public through health care licensure, enforcement and information.
FOCUS: To be the nation's leader in quality health care regulation.
VALUES: Integrity, Commitment, Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Teamwork, & Empowerment.” ("doh.state.fl.us/mqa/medical/me_meeting.html")
According to Janet Colbert of Stoppnow “The BOM could have saved many lives if they had taken their responsibilities seriously. The Governor appoints these individuals to their posts.”
According to the Broward County Florida Sheriff in February, Al Lamberti: “When I was appointed in 2007, there were four pain clinics; now there are 130. There are more pain clinics than McDonald’s.”
STOPPNOW will be holding a peaceful protest outside of the scheduled Florida Board of Medicine meeting. All are invited to join.
