Why are there no regulations in the medical section of the Rules and regulations of professions and occupations in the Florida laws?
Also, there are no specific requirements for education, training, testing, examinations, certification, and licensing for health professionals and workers caring for persons suffering of AD, like for other health care practices? Such as HIV, PAIN, THERAPIES [physical, occupational, speech, cognitive, musical ....] etc. The press has reported on front page articles the most abominable abuse, including murder, perpetrated on AD patients in Medicare/Medicaid programs by professional home health carers employed by home health care agencies under contract with government agencies to provide direct contact care services to AD patients in medicare/medicaid programs. This aberrant abuse and lack of lack of protective regulations are blatant violations of the elderly victims civil rights, protection from discrimination, and the AWDA requirements. Several reports from studies performed by top institutions and laboratories, like John Hopkins University School of Medicine and by insurers, have estimated that care of AD patients by properly trained physicians and nurses would lower the net cost of care by nearly 50% in medicament, trips to the ERs, hospitalization, etc besides improving the quality of life of the patients, family members, and caregivers. Note that projected cost of AD care, as is now practiced with incompetent carers, to the nation is in the $ trillions. Why regulations for the care of AD are not existing?
