State Sen. Buddy Carter (R-Pooler) authored the â€œPatient Safety Act of 2011â€ which would create an electronic database of all controlled substance prescriptions dispensed in Georgia. The database would be accessible only to medication prescribers and dispensers for their own patients or law enforcement if they are investigating an open case, which would require a subpoena for access.
The Prescription Drug Monitoring Act is back! And look, it has a brand new name! How shocking.
I can hear the cries now, "Please make us safe! Please protect us! Its for the children!" anic:
