I had a patient who wanted something for her headache. I offered her the Tylenol the doctor had ordered for her to take on a prn schedule. She told me she was hospitalized many times before, and was charged $25.00 per Tylenol tablet
She refused, and said she'd keep her headache before she paid that much again for a Tylenol!
Can we blame our patients for turning down meds that they know are so expensive in the first place?
What is happening in healthcare is atrocious to say the least!
I can buy several bottles of Tylenol for that price!
