Pain patients left in anguish by doctors 'terrified' of opioid addiction, despite CDC change

Jul 1, 2019, 8:38 AM

Chronic pain sufferers 'between a rock and a hard place' State regulators, health insurers and even disability administrators have cited the federal guidelines to justify policies that limit pain pill prescriptions. Last month, the CDC clarified its position, saying the response to the opioid crisis went too far. In a New England Journal of Medicine editorial, a panel of experts cited examples such as inflexible thresholds on dosages, abrupt tapering and misapplication of the guidelines for people with cancer, sickle cell disease or recovering from surgery. Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, a former health secretary of Maryland and health commissioner of Baltimore, said he supports how the CDC's clarified guidelines reconcile the risk of opioids with their need.

Insult to injury: Workers’ compensation isn’t working in New York

Jun 7, 2019, 8:44 AM

While the city contemplates demanding employers provide paid vacation days and other new guarantees for workers toward the bottom of the pay and power scale, a basic piece of the safety net is frayed: the workers’ compensation system meant to support people who get hurt on the job, and to help their families get by when a breadwinner is killed. Workers’ comp is a private system with benefits set by the state. Employers buy the insurance, which then pays out when an employee sustains an injury that results in lost wages. A new report from the Center for New York City Affairs lays out some grim vitals. Annually in New York State, 115,000 people get hurt and are forced to take time off work as a result. While that figure is way down over the decades, fatal injuries just hit their highest level in 20 years, driven by a spike in construction deaths.
