My wife Patricia found a bar for a birthday party for me, my 70th birthday. I think about 60 people showed up to eat and drink. I used my K-Bar to cut the cake. As I thought about things I decided to go back decades in my long life.

It Ain't East Being Indian

The title for my column is a tribute to my late Unk Gene who would stand taller, puff his chest out and declare, “It ain’t easy being Indian, but someone’s gotta do it”. Then he would beamingly smile to all who were in the room, obviously implying that he was the right Indian for the job. That he was! ;D I miss you Unk!

NACC changes pain prescription policy

cover_story_nacc_pain_meds.jpgThe Native American Community Clinic (NACC) has recently changed its policy regarding the prescription of narcotics for chronic pain.  

The new policy went into effect the second week of March and NACC staff posted a letter in the clinic lobby to inform patients. The letter states that the change was made “due to regulations at the level of the drug enforcement agency” and outlines that the NACC “will no longer provide new prescriptions for narcotics for chronic conditions.” Some health care professionals feel this represents a move toward more responsible pain management, while others feel it is tantamount to refusing to treat patients with chronic pain.
Dr. Kari Rabie, the Medical Director of the NACC, said that the impetus for the change was the theft and abuse of a nurse’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number by a NACC  patient, who used it to order multiple prescriptions of narcotics. A DEA number functions as a health care professional’s signature and is required in order for new prescription to be filled at a pharmacy.
