RX drugs in ER

  1. 0 AS a ER RN are we part of the problem with the increase in RX overdoses. Sometimes I feel responsible for allowing it to continue. The doctors give lortab/norco RX as tic-tacs to every PT that has the smallest pain. You see the same PT over and over and now they are hooked. Can we as ER nurses say "no" to giving them their RX. Just a thought. Would like your thoughts.
