I've only been in the ER for 2 months, but curious to other's reply to this. In my ER, we're required to do preg tests on all females (unless they've had a hyst) before giving Toradol. Does anyone else do this?
Last week I had a pt come in with alot of pain, and my doc ordered Toradol for her. I decided to go ahead and draw it up, but my coworkers argued with me stating I absolutely couldn't give it until we ran a preg test, my doctor overheard the argument and stated to go ahead and give it and that he's never heard of this rule.
