Did It Have To Happen?

Sep 29, 2011 | | Drug policy, Michael Jackson homicide trial | No Comments

Three best practices in drug policy that could have helped prevent Michael Jackson’s death:  

 If Michael Jackson were receiving controlled substance prescriptions from multiple prescribers, the prescribers would have taken notice when checking the electronic prescription database.

Prescriptions from practitioners in Nevada would have shown up in California’s database and vice versa.

If Michael Jackson had been receiving quantities of controlled substances outside the norm, public health officials would have been alerted and could have investigated and intervened.
