Lol al a carte ordering! I like that ! The problem is that some of patients I deal with on a nightly basis have decided the patients right to have effective pain management means exactly that! They try and tell me what they want, and often times how they want it! I’ll have 2 mg of dilaudid and you need to push it as close to my IV site as possible, and do it fast not slow! I’ve even had managers at our staff meetings stating that these patients complained that they felt they had not received their pain meds q 4 “as ordered” even after we have reiterated over and over to these patients what PRN means. And another thing, has anyone noticed the scrollers don’t have an age range anymore? Not that long ago our drug seekers were usually 20-40 now they could be 15 to 80! Lol
