Lehigh Valley hospital has the nation’s highest rate of opioid deaths, state health official says


(AP) Lehigh County health officials say they have the nation’t only the nation s highest rate at a nursing home, but the nations highest rate for patients dying of opioid overdoses, a trend that they say has gotten worse in recent years.

The Lehigh Times-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1Lq8yfX ) that Lehigh Hospital has a death rate of about 11 per 100,000 residents.

It also has the second highest overdose rate of any nursing home in the state.

The Times-tribune says Lehigh’s opioid crisis has gotten so bad that it has had to shut down its entire emergency department for the past four months.

That means nearly 1,500 of its nearly 1.3 million residents now have to wait until next month to get in touch with the hospital.

Lehigh spokeswoman Maryann Housley says it’s too early to tell whether that will be enough to address the problem, since the state is in the middle of an opioid withdrawal.

Why are hospitals so bad at delivering high-quality care?

Health care has long been a source of controversy, but it is now also an increasingly important area of study.

Health care in the US has grown by $16.9 trillion since 2000, a rate of nearly 3,000 percent per year, according to a study released on Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The study, published in the journal Health Affairs, found that more than half of the healthcare spending in the country is being spent on healthcare that is not in the most efficient way.

The average health care bill for Americans aged 25-54 was $8,700 in 2013.

This figure is far higher than the national average of $6,800.

The US health care system is a complex mix of insurance and private health care, with different levels of access to care and different prices for services.

Healthcare has become more fragmented in recent years, but many experts believe the health care problem is only getting worse.

It is not only the price that is driving the growth in healthcare costs, but also the high cost of the drugs that are used to treat patients.

In recent years the number of new drugs has exploded, with the number doubling in the past decade.

There are currently over 2,000 new medications in the pipeline.

“If you look at the number and the amount of drugs coming into the market, we are at about 25,000 [new] drugs that a year,” Dr. Peter Diamandis, chairman of the department of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, told CBS News.

“There’s just no room for any of those drugs in the system.”

Dr. Diamendis also noted that the number is on the rise because pharmaceutical companies are producing more drugs.

“The growth of the market has been tremendous,” he said.

“I think that’s because they’re getting a lot more bang for their buck, and they’re trying to get to the market with the lowest risk of doing any harm.”

In the US, over 80 percent of healthcare spending is spent on routine care.

In 2016, Medicare paid for the entire average cost of a single doctor visit, according the Kaiser Family Foundation.

This was a huge increase from 2015, when Medicare paid $634, or 12.7 percent of the cost of an average visit, the foundation found.

“Medicare pays for only a fraction of the costs of routine care in this country,” Drs.

Daniel Shor, chief executive officer of the National Association of State Medical Boards, and David Katz, chief medical officer of Doctors Hospitals & Dentists of America, said in a joint statement.

“In order to ensure that our system remains stable, we must be prepared to invest in research, training and technology to deliver better care.”

Drs Diamends and Katz are leading efforts to address this issue, which is particularly relevant to rural healthcare providers, because most rural healthcare is located in states that were not previously covered by Medicare.

The group has also been working with hospitals to reduce the costs that rural hospitals face, including by improving quality of care and offering more affordable services.

“We are also working to increase the level of access for rural healthcare,” Dr Diamands said.

Loyola Medical Center nurses hospitalized after shooting

A hospital nurse was hospitalized Tuesday with a gunshot wound to the head, after a gunman opened fire in her hospital room, Los Angeles Police said.

Loyolans police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Dela Cruz said the shooting happened Tuesday night in the parking lot of the Loyolas La Mirada Medical Center in North Hollywood, where the nurse was stationed.

The hospital is just a few blocks away from a strip mall.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement that he is “deeply saddened” by the shooting.

LACMA hospital is one of several L.E.C. hospitals that was the target of an armed gunman during a mass shooting in January.

Police have not said how many shots were fired during the shooting but said it was not a random attack.

The gunman was shot and killed by police and no one else was injured.
