Georgia's COVID-19 Heroes: St. Joseph's/Candler E-Learning Camps

The COVID-19 pandemic caused school closures all across the country, turning many families' worlds upside down. This left many hospital workers with a dilemma. They needed to stay home with their children, but hospitals, already short-staffed even before the pandemic, needed them at work. Here is how St. Joseph's/Candler solved both problems. #ThankAHospitalHero

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Upson Regional Medical Center's James Searcy. A 2012 GHA Hospital Hero, James began his career at the hospital in 1969 as an orderly. He would spend extra time going into homes in the community to care for patients before his shift began. After his shift, his attentiveness to patients continued when he would sit with some so their families could go home and rest. His reputation often preceded him – several patients and their families frequently requested his services while they were at the hospital. James, you have left an indelible mark on your community and the health care industry. We thank you and send condolences to your family. May you rest in peace.

bombshell... bombshell .. bombshell ..the most enjoyable post you will ever read in your life ..please make sure that you and politicians before reading this post to have an open window to bring air plus a bottle of water on the side in case if you laugh too much from joy because you will find the power of knowledge and research which you have never seen before will evolve to the happiest event in the history of USA and the globe to follow where a proactive opioid system has arrived to replace current reactive opioid system it is not only the death merchants group(prescription opioid and heroin drug cartels and bad prescribers with its affiliates of dishonorable pharmaceuticals companies ) will see their criminal organizations are crumbling over their heads ..these criminals are adding to the cemeteries 115 Americans of opioid overdose related death on a daily basis as we speak !! but my proactive opioid system will stop these heartbreaking tragedies from happening anymore because opioid epidemic will be a thing of the past , plus also genuine patients with serious pain with documented diagnostic tests will not suffer anymore to find good faith prescribers who are willing to take the risk of issuing opioid prescriptions because the state will issue a prior authorization number(PA) for each of these issued prescriptions , this PA is only for one purpose which is to acknowledge the prescriber that based on provided diagnostic tests the state will not go after the prescriber’s license for potential opioid diversion for that particular prescription for which the PA is issued, please note the PA does not endorse treatment for issued opioid prescription or carry the liability of the outcome of the treatment since the truth will prevail at the end , the death merchant group are now wrapping their criminal business due to my upcoming proactive opioid system which will give them pink slip and running shoes , they are now super busy shopping for high quality running shoes because they must run very fast !! current reactive opioid system inadvertently has created abundance of wealth to these drug cartels !!! but no worry because they will miss and say goodbye with tears and cries to the current reactive opioid system and will Flip over to see their worse nightmare of scary ghost with glowing fire coming out of his mouth to announce to drug cartels that they will be very poor because my proactive opioid system has arrived and their prescription opioid and heroin party is over !! it is all about the following two key words proactive versus reactive As per most recent CDC figures where we have 28% increase in opioid related deaths in 2016 over 2015 , to make things worse since statistics started about opioid related death in 1999 which about 17 years ago from last statics by CDC in 2016 , based on the CDC opioid related death chart the opioid related deaths increased by 400% since 1999 ...till 2016 however we sill have the same reactive system which keep filing cemeteries with more opioid related deaths year after year since 1999 ...!! It is highly unlikely to happen if we wake up one morning to find a miracle happen where the current reactive system has mutated by itself into proactive system !! we know mutation can happen in bactria and viruses but it is highly unlikely to happen in an opioid system !! here quote on quote from the recent CDC published report “we are talking about more than exponential increase “ A-unlike my proactive opioid system , the current reactive opioid system does not have the infrastructure capability to differentiate between issued good faith opioid prescriptions and potentially diverted opioid prescriptions which also get filled inside pharmacy computer dispensing system then leave pharmacy doors already left pharmacy doors when it become too late resulting in flooding streets with dopioids then bad actors end up in jail which is despite it is important for justice to take place but does not offer much help to opioid crisis because more bad actors pop up across the street plus as per several published reports which I have on hand which shows it takes few years which is understandable time frame which takes for law enforcement to have bad prescribers under the radar in order to be able to collect valid court evidence to shut down bad prescribers , during such few years the cemeteries will have a lot of opioid related deaths....during such few years period the current reactive system is inadvertently give an open buffet of opioids to prescription opioid drug cartels and heroin drug cartels because as per published report by NIH (national institute on drug abuse ) 80% of heroin drug addicts started with misuse of opioid prescriptions . it is the current reactive system which inadvertently creates opioid drug addicts by one hand then spend billions of dollars by the other hand to treat the same opioid drug addicts which was created by the first hand .!!! what a life !! however in my proactive opioid system we will not spend a penny to treat opioid addicts because there will be no diverted opioid prescriptions in the first place which causes the addiction breaking news of research this is the amazing breaking news which will give every one a big smile which give all of us the answer to the mystery which every one was looking for , why opioid epidemic is getting from bad to worse year after year despite of billions of dollars spent to contain the opioid epidermic ??!! the answer is in these four words law enforcement radar period and more bombshell in this next coming statement it is completely completely completely impossible impossible impossible to eliminate the law enforcement radar period unless we replace current reactive opioid system with my proactive opioid system because it has the perfect infrastructure with perfect pinpoint mechanism which will flawlessly execute the above with 100% accuracy which obviously will result in immediate ending for opioid epidemic because the above published reports prove with no single doubt that it was the LAW ENFORCEMENT RADAR PERIOD was the missing mystery which we have been looking for decades to explain why opioid related deaths are getting worse year after year despite of billions spent to contain the opioid epidemic BASED ON THE ABOVE RESEARCH REPLACING CURRENT REACTIVE OPIOID SYSTEM WITH MY PROACTIVE OPIOID SYSTEM IS NOT ONLY THE BEST OPTION BUT RATHER IT IS THE ONLY OPTION it is understandable that law enforcement need time to have bad operations under the radar before being able to collect enough court evidence to shut down bad opioid diverting operation because it is such complex legal process without guaranteed success depending on many variables for being gray professional area which can involve complex medical professional defense , it is not fault of law enforcement , it is the fault of the current reactive system which inadvertently put law enforcement in such difficult predicament here is examples of published reports which show how long it takes law enforcement to have bad operations under radar to be able to collect valid court evidence to shut down bad operations involved in prescription opioid diversion 1-a published report by the DEA.GOV/NEW YORK TIMES DATED 1/23/2017 was from12/01/2011 till 01/07/2017 about 5 years of radar period by law enforcement 2-a published report by Emma Whitford dated 10/30/2015 , this report did not provide start and end date for for the radar period of law enforcements but it states about 5 years of radar period by law enforcement 3-a published report dated 8/23/2017 by Cadmen ,NJ (AP) , the radar period was from 03/2008 08/2013 which is about 5 years of radar period by law enforcement 4-a published report by jennifer Barrett dated 01/25/2017 , the radar period was from 12/2011 till 01/2017 which is about 4 years of radar period by law enforcement 5-a published report by Nicholas Rizzi on 12/19/2013 it shows about 4 years of radar period by law enforcement 6-a published report by Alex Napoliello dated 12/19/2013 , this report did not provide start and end date for for the radar period of law enforcements but it states about 4 years of radar period by law enforcement 7-a published report dated 04/25/2014 , the radar period started in 2008 till 2012 which is about 4 years of radar period by law enforcement 8-a published report dated 11/24/2015 by the new york times shows the radar period was from june 2012 till june 2015 which is about 3 years of radar period of law enforcement 9-a published report by the new york times dated 04/07 2017 the radar period started 2012 till 2017 which is about 5 years radar period of law enforcement 10-a published report dated 11/20/217 by the los angeles times , the radar period started march /2011 till 04/2016 which is about 5 years of radar period by law enforcement 11-in a published report dated 04/11/202017 by Mary Murphy , the radar period started in 2012 till 2017 which is about 5 years of radar period by law enforcement we can save all the above aggravation to law enforcement and court system once my proactive opioid system is in place , it will be the best thing ever happen in the history of USA while the of the globe will follow remember that during the above radar period by law enforcement , both prescription opioid and heroin drug cartels are in ful swing in order to convert regular cemeteries into opioid related death cemeteries, lots families and communities are wiped out , the simplicity and logic of my proactive opioid system will make it very obvious for any one to conclude that all this devastation will be a thing of the past once my proactive opioid system is in place the above report prove the only option is to replace current reactive opioid system with a proactive opioid system for obvious reasons both the prescription opioid and heroin drug cartels makes tons of money each year from each single operation , remember they already made the whooping money by the time they are shut down by court then they just go across the street to start another criminal operations under different ownership name of different gang member while there is not shortage of supply of dishonest professionals once they are offered the big money ... above is furthered proved by latest CDC report of 28% increased by opioid related deaths between 2015 to 2016 It is obvious that the above proof with no single doubt that replacing current reactive opioid system with a reactive opioid system is the only available option B-in my proactive system convert any issued potentially diverted opioid prescription including the ones paid out of pocket by patients will be automatically converted into a worthless piece of paper because it will be impossible to processs any issued opioid prescription without PA inside any pharmacy software dispensing system anywhere in USA because the specialized 24/7 opioid prescription pharmacy benefit manager processor(PBM) will not issue prior approval (PA) for it ,it is up to the provider to electronically submit to the PBM the diagnostic tests to such issued opioid prescriptions i , such list of diagnostic tests is set by each state , the PBM function is only limited to obtain and keep on file such list of diagnostic tests received from prescriber , prescribers involved in opioid diversion cannot send nothing for obvious reasons but there will be no violation if prescriber send invalid diagnostic tests or did not send anything to PBM but will result that the PBM will not issue PA , this will convert the issued opioid prescription to be a worthless piece of paper because cannot be processed in any pharmacy software dispensing system anywhere in USA because the PBM did not issue PA for it which if issued it has to be entered in a certain field which is impossible to proceed any further unless those certain PA digits is entered in such PA field while on the other hand good faith prescribers will have the valid diagnostic tests which will be sent to PBM and at that time the prescriber get immediate response with issued PA from PBM when the pharmacy will put such PA in the PA field of the pharmacy software dispensing system when the patient get the opioid prescription immediately ...it is a simple system the issuing or refusal to issue of PA by PBM is for the only purpose of excluding or not excluding the potential for opioid diversion, it does not mean endorsing or not endorsing such opioid prescription as a valid or non valid medical treatment for such patient ...accordingly zero liability on the state about the outcome of the treatment C-the infrastructure of current system does not have the capability to protect license of good faith prescribers when issuing opioid prescriptions, accordingly genuine patients with severe pain around the clock genuine patients with documented diagnostic tests who had endless sleepless nights crying from pain/ clutching bed sheets with teeth from excruciating pain who are not able to find prescribers who is wiling to take the risk on their license to issue opioid prescriptions , my proactive opioid infrastructure system will have the precise mechanism with 100% accuracy to issue the green light with prior approval number which mean exclusion of possibility of potential opioid diversion for such issued opioid prescription which mean the prescriber cannot be accused at a later date for opioid diversion about such prescription for which was issued a PA , accordingly removing the risk on prescriber’s license when prescribing opioids because each prescription will be issued PA by the PBM , otherwise patients are having very hard time to find prescribers who are willing to issue opioid prescriptions , this is inadvertently pushing genuine patients with serious pain to use street opioids (heroin) which inadvertently result in booming business for heroin drug cartels , preventing such heart breaking images for fellow humans with serious pain has a priceless pay back for all of us , patients who are able to manage the pain with pain killers can be part of the labor force even as part time to pay taxes and help their children to go to school...etc compared to other patients who cannot manage pain when not have access to pain killers means need government help and not able to offer much to help their children ,the lives of these kinds of millions of genuine patients are inadvertently destroyed by the current opioid system which inadvertently resulted that genuine patients are not able to find good faith prescribers to take the risk to issue their badly needed opioid prescriptions which they deserve , we need to look with a broad angle to the whole picture and for long term rather than short term the reasons why the rise in opioid related deaths means our safety is decreasing by almost the same percentage as the increase in opioid related deaths 1-here is the CDC(center for disease control ) recent report on the increase opioid related death increase from 2015 to 2016 which shows 28% increase , also the it shows 400% increase since 1999 2-opioid related deaths consists of prescription opioids and street opioids(heroin) 3-street opioids is exclusively controlled by heroin drug cartels Prescription opioids diversion can be one of two kinds A-prescriber prescribe opioids to a drug addict rather than refering such drug addict to a drug addict treatment specialist , this kind does not involve prescription opioid drug cartels b-more dangerous kind of prescription opioid diversion involve drug runners who bring an identification cards for whom issued opioid prescriptions while the prescriber never seen this patient for whom the opioid prescription was issued then the same drug runner take the issued opioid prescription to a pharmacy to be filled or the person who have never the prescriber take the prescription to be filled in a pharmacy then sold on street for whooping profits 5-I have on hand a published report in pharmacy times magazine dated may 20/2015 by Meghan ross where it is mentioned 51 vehicles , 202 weapons and about $404,000 cash was seized where 22 pharmacists and doctors were arrested in DEA (drug enforcement agency )operation , the amount of weapons (202 weapons) indicates the involvement of prescription opioid drug cartels in bad clinics and pharmacies 6-it is normal that drug cartels business has the same ambition as any other business, the exponential increase in opioid related deaths means more diverted prescription opioids and more street opioids (heroin) is sold on the streets which results in exponential increase in profits by same ratio as the exponential increase in opioid related deaths which mean expanding to newer areas of town to create new markets which resulted in such whooping 28% increase in opioid sales between 2015 to 2016 , it is same as any business when succeed then it is normal to expand to more locations to make more money , this mean as per CDC figures showing 28% increase in opioid related deaths from 2015 to 2016 it means 28% increase revenue because they would have sold 28% more opioids in 2016 compared to 2015 which has resulted in 28% increase opioid related overdose fatalities the above means both prescription opioid drug cartels and heroin drug cartels is certainly getting closer and closer to our neighborhood when it expand into new markets because they cannot expand in the same market otherwise they can get caught easy by law enforcement when they notice high street activities in small area which makes them easy target by law enforcement continuation of the current reactive opioid system will eventually turn our cities the same as other cities infested with drug cartels where you see on TV with dead bodies on streets as being a normal daily seen...!! it is impossible to repair a reactive rather than proactive opioid system , a reactive opioid system is a land mine , we cannot even try to repair it , we cannot touch it otherwise it explodes , we can only detonate it , dispose it and replace it with proactive infrastructure opioid system we need to move immediately to start implementing my proactive opioid system because 1-people are dying daily where 115 americans are dying every day which is about 5 per each hour precious lives are taken away from us as we speak 2- based on the scary figures from the CDC combined with the theory of probability that the people who are defending our country and law enforcements are relatively young men and women with such age group which can be vulnerable to opioid addiction , there has been and/or will be some degree of erosion in national security where more than likely an increasing number of these young men and women are and/ or will have opioid addiction 3-the more time we wait to implement my proactive opioid system the more the death merchant group will get richer with potential infiltration into our government and law enforcement which can see in many other countries where drug cartels are using bribes to control various government institutions including law enforcements , the current reactive opioid system is nothing except a daily goldmine for the death merchant group 4-as mentioned earlier based on the exponential rise in opioid related deaths it means more and more drug cartels are moving closer to our neighborhoods , probably it will not be too long before we see daily streets war zones with grossom scenes even in upscales neighborhoods where law enforcement are embattled against drug cartels , this is the exact translations of the recent CDC figures, we can see the real live images on streets of other countries infested with drug cartels ..sadly the CDC figures tell us we are on are on track to see the same scenes !! I decided to volunteer plus you will need my expertise anyway to start implementing my proactive opioid system because I am the architect of this system , I will get red off any obstacles to be put aside together with the death merchant group ready to be picked up by the garbage truck ..!! additional steps needed to implement my proactive opioid system . 1-upon implementation , we need to convince insurances not to override the quantities of opioid prescribed by good faith prescribers who have been issued the PA from the PBM for their issued opioid prescriptions based on patient diagnostic tests which mean no potential diversion, , please remember if these genuine patients with serious pain around the clock are not able the get the quantity of prescribed opioid prescriptions they will end up buying heroin(street opioids) which mean the insurance will be inadvertently boosting the heroin drug cartels ...!! here is the last nail in the coffin of heroin drug cartels 2-all opioids and benzodiazepine patients wil be enrolled in either HMO insurance plan or ppo insurance plan with zero monthly premium where it will either be a secondary for patients who already have insurance to pick up the copayment from the their primary insurance for opioid/benzodiazepine prescriptions or for patients with no insurance to be primary with zero copayment for opioid/benzodiazepine prescriptions , this will be a very smart move because sometime the cost of copayment is more the cost of heroin because heroin is so cheap , accordingly when patients are able to get at no charge all their opioid /benzodiazepine prescriptions issued by good faith prescriber for which PA is issued by the state then heroin drug cartels will pull all their hair till they become bold !! please remember diverted benzodiazepine prescriptions are usually sold on the streets by prescription opioid drug cartels we will use every possible tool to annihilate the business model of each member of death merchant group my proactive opioid system wil result in 1-the biggest economic stimulus ever in the history of USA with details to follow 2-the biggest national security boost ever in history of USA with details to follow welcome to the world of a pharmacist ,s creativity where encyclopedia of knowledge about the real life (not theoretical ) of the moving wheels of both prescription opioids and street opioids (heroin) has resulted in a proactive to replace current reactive opioid system in order to save the globe including USA from an imminent opioid catastrophe the following 5 points are summary of my research 1-there will be zero successful legal challenges as far as meeting meet HIPAA laws for protecting patients information because we will be using only two entitles which has access to patient information are A- the pharmacy benefit manager processor (PBM) but they already have access to such information as we speak because when any of us fill prescriptions anywhere in USA through insurances it has to be processed through PBM b-the 50 states already have access as we speak to every controlled substance prescription which of course includes any prescriptions for opioids and benzodiazepines filled anywhere in USA when each of the 50 states receives the mandatory daily report by every pharmacy anywhere in USA through using the secured health and human services portal as part of drug monitoring program which is administered by all 50 states which already have access to confidential patient information on hourly basis as we speak , accordingly my system is ready to implement because it has zero chance of successful legal challenge as far as HIPAA law as pertaining to protection of patient confidential information 2-Dismantling a global criminal empire of the death merchant group which are as follows, A-opioid prescription drug cartels B-heroin drug cartels C- bad prescribers involved in prescription opioid diversion , this includes prescribers who prescribe opioids to drug addicts rather than referring such drug addict to a drug addict treatment professional D- bad pharmaceuticals companies engaged in dishonorable opioid business practise will be forced out of business because their associated business partners and their life support will go out of business which are bad prescribers involved in the prescription opioid diversion the above death merchant group will be forced out of business through using annihilation of business model technique without court proceedings and without firing a single shot against drug cartels 3-if we continue to use the same system which has created the opioid crisis in the first place , it is a comparable scenario where we cannot expect a patient’s health to improve if continue eating the same food which caused illness in the first place ...!! the foundation of the current infrastructure of opioid system is reactive which is wrong by any standard of logic and common sense in the first place and cannot be repaired because its whole infrastructure is reactive system , it need to be replaced with new infrastructure with new foundation based on a proactive infrastructure rather than the current reactive infrastructure , it is a comparable scenario if the foundation of a building has an error in engineering in the first place causing growing cracks allover the building , we need to demolish the building then find the engineer who can do the correct engineering design for the foundation, that is what I did based on severals years of research I am the pharmacist who discovered all government around the globe including USA has been using the wrong reactive opioid infrastructure since existed for decades resulting in millions of avoidable opioid death but more importantly I replaced it with my proactive infrastructure system equipped with precision guided mechanism to separate issued good faith opioid prescriptions from issued potentially diverted opioid prescriptions then I added to it a secondary additional infrastructure with further precision guided mechanism to covert issued potentially diverted opioid prescriptions into worthless piece of paper which cannot be processed in any pharmacy software system anywhere in USA due to lack of digits of prior approval you will find every word in this priceless research is true, real , accurate and make sense pharmacist’s research and creativity resulting in a diamond for life to rest of the world my system will result in 1-bad prescribers involved in opioid diversion will be out of business while good faith opioid prescribers will thrive because we want people with severe pain to relief their pain through legal opioid prescriptions instead of resorting to illegal illicit street drugs to relieve their pain 2-Saving tax payers money on various levels A-As per above no more costly operational , court cost and incarceration cost against prescription opioid dug cartels and heroin drug cartels where we put them out of business B-Ending opioid epidemic means saving billions of dollars spent to treat opioid addicts and stopping destruction of communities and families where 100% of prescription opioid diversion will be over plus 80% of illicit street opioid will be over because as per published research which I posted it shows 80% of heroin(illicit Opioid ) addicts started with misuse of prescription opioids , this will make it easy manageable job for law enforcement to end the remaining 20% of heroin C-Massive cuts in labor force in both drug enforcement agency and health & human services because both prescription opioid/benzdioxazine drug diversion and opioid epidemic will be a thing of the past D-Dramatic cut in government assistance system where as per last available statistics in 2015 about 1 million individuals could not participate in the labor market due to opioids and this number is now higher because opioid epidemic has grown from 2015 till now , all these unemployed individuals has to get money from government to survive , my system which will end opioid epidemic which will save these billions of dollars spent on public assistance to opioid addicts who would have been emerged in the future if we did not replace current system with my system , those individuals will earn money instead of living on government help ..this result in more tax collected as a result of having this massive number participating labor market who will also spend money resulting in business growth All the above future saving for tax payer will add to be the largest economic stimulus ever in entire US history 3--this million opioid addicts are mostly young men and women resulting erosion in national security where a million cannot join military or law enforcement , my system which end opioid epidemic means more stronger national security as a result of having plenty of supply of young healthy drug free individuals whose mental sharpness and physical strength are not negatively by the serious side effects of opioids , any investments in any kind of fighting machinery will be useless unless we have the healthy drug free young men and women who can operate such machinery with a focused opioid free brain functions this will result in the largest boost ever in US national security 4-safer working conditions for law enforcements where we put both prescription opioid drug cartels and heroin drug cartels out of business without firing a single shot through using annihilation business model technique resulting in safer communities 5-the above process which I architected despite it is one simple process it will make history and will change whole World where before the opioid prescription is filled we will be able to separate between the issued good faith opioid prescriptions from the issued potentially diverted opioid prescriptions 6--prescription opioid drug cartels will be out of business resulting in safe communities 7-As per my post in face book which has published report from NIH,national institute on drug abuse ,it shows 80% of heroin addicts started with misuse of opioid prescription drugs , accordingly if we end up opioid prescription diversion we end up reducing the number of current heroin addicts to only 20% of its current level which pave the road to completely end heroin addiction through healthcare professional and law enforcement who can have easier grip on only 20% of current number of heroin addicts , this result in heroin drug cartels will be out of business in addition to putting out of business prescription opioid drug cartels 8-benzodiapzepine users represent high risk not only to their health but to rest of society , accordingly benzodiazepine to be included in my system to ensure good faith prescribing if you google information about benzodiazepines , you will find several published reports as follows , A- combination of opioids and benzo could be life threatening , usually people does not die from opioids alone or benzodiazepine alone but usually the combination of both is fatal in high does for both but small doses and on short term basis are ok , B- side effects of benzodiazepine are lack of coordination , difficulty breathing and coma ..this explain many fatal crashes on daily basis involves benzodiazepine ,we find even benzodiazepine users go hit the electric pole or go over the curb and kill people just walking on side walks ..accordingly benzodiazepine patients represent a risk for all of us when we are driving or just walking on side walk .. c- benzodiazepine are being used as rape drugs where a bad person give benzodiazepine to a woman then rape her while the benzodiazepine will deprive her of the ability to resist and even will not remember that she was raped but her life is already ruined ...there are drug cartels who traffic in benzodiazepine which often used to rape ....accordingly we will never lose while everything to gain if benzodiazepine to be included in my system to make sure good faith prescribing is adopted to prevent none of the above tragedies from happening 115 american are dying daily to speak to law makers /politicians to check the trophy of research and knowledge in my book which is based on hundreds of pages of published reports which I printed to back up every single conclusion in my book which is mainly a collection of home work of published reports in order to reflect accuracy and truth, they will conclude they finally found the wright track to end opioid epidemic
