Marion General Hospital and several law enforcement agencies and health providers have banded together to establish guidelines on prescription drug distribution and usage.
MGH Spokesperson Ann Vermilion says the guidelines should help reduce the amount of prescription medication coming from the hospital and the MGH Primary care offices.
She says the goal is getting them away from medication and finding the source of their pain.
Marion General Hospital will use the new guidelines in conjunction with local health care providers and local law enforcement agencies in Grant and surrounding counties to try and reduce the amount of prescription pain medication being used in the area.
