Gardena Memorial Hospital in New Jersey is the only hospital in the state to accept prescription drugs for opioid overdose patients, according to a new study.
The facility, located in Newark, New Jersey, opened in 2010 and has since become a center for treatment of people who have died from opioid overdoses.
As of March 2017, Gardena was the only New Jersey hospital to accept opioid prescription drug treatment.
According to the study, Gardenas overdose prevention programs have resulted in an estimated 5,200 opioid-related deaths.
The Gardena Hospital’s opioid programs are based on the following guidelines:* Patients must receive the highest level of care that the hospital can provide.
This means that the patient must be given the full spectrum of treatment options and be treated with the utmost care and compassion.* The patient should not be able to access or receive opioids from other hospitals.
The patient must have access to a safe place to receive opioid treatment.* Patients should not have access or access to the opioid overdose medication they need to continue with treatment.
The medication must be provided by the hospital and administered in a safe manner.*The hospital must have a protocol in place to ensure that the medications are kept separate and in a separate facility.*Gardena is committed to providing opioid overdose treatment to all patients regardless of their health status, race, income, gender, age, physical condition, disability, religion, or any other factor.

Garcia, NJ (CNN) New Jersey has the second highest overdose death rate in the United States, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at 2,979 per 100,000 residents.
That means that Gardena has the highest overdose mortality rate of any state.
According the Centers, the Gardena overdose prevention strategy is focused on the patient and their loved ones.
This includes drug treatment for individuals with addiction and opioid-induced pain.
“We see the people who are most at risk for this are those with the most severe symptoms, the ones who are dying from opioid overdose,” said Gardena Chief Medical Officer Dr. William P. Gollnick.
“They’re at high risk for death.”
Gardas opioid programs include the following protocols:1) Patients must be treated in a medical facility that is equipped to provide comprehensive opioid treatment and opioid overdose control services.2) The hospital must maintain a supervised injection facility that complies with state and federal guidelines.3) The patient can receive pain medications from a licensed physician or pharmacist.
The Gardena hospital’s opioid program is based on guidelines developed by the Centers.
Gardena’s overdose prevention is based around the following three pillars:First, Gardenac has the best treatment options for the patients who are at high-risk for opioid overdoses, Gollnik said.
In addition, the hospital is the first hospital in New York state to offer overdose prevention services.
The treatment is not limited to those with severe opioid- and alcohol-related addictions, he said.
The program provides pain medications for those who are experiencing a range of symptoms, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and a range in how long they experience the withdrawal symptoms.

The hospital will also monitor the medication level and whether patients are receiving the medication at the prescribed dose, Gllnick said, adding that staff can use their discretion to provide medications that they deem appropriate.
Galliant is also using its overdose prevention model to reduce opioid use.
The hospital is taking steps to reduce its opioid prescribing rates, Giolnick said during a March 24, 2018 news conference.
The organization is also conducting research on the drug.
Gilligan said the opioid prescription rates in New England are the highest in the nation.
“In New York State, we have the highest rate of prescription opioid use in the country,” Gilligan said.
“So, what we are doing is creating a model to work with the state of New York to increase our rates.”
This model has a lot of different components, which is really unique to Gardena,” Gilligian said.
Gelligan said Gardenac is the nation’s leading provider of opioid prescription medication to the
