It is long overdue.
This particular doctor has done the following while I have worked with her or near her at this clinic:
After I inform her a particular patient I have worked up is suspected to be under the influence, she sends them home with narcotics. This has happened dozens of times in the last few months.
After I hand her evidence of failed urine drug screenings,including positives for cocaine, pcp, meth, and marijuana, she sends patients home with narcotics.
After I hand her evidence of multiple doctors writing for the same drug for the same patient, she sends them home with narcotics. She even gave narcotics to the patient that was obtaining meds under two names and was caught by the local ER.
To top this off, she fails to adequately treat some of the underlying chronic issues some of these patients have.
Patients are often on doses and combinations of painkillers that exceed safe limits.
For the life of me, I cannot find anything defensible about this doctors behavior. I know the patients seeking these drugs have issues of their own. But on my lunch today I saw one of her morning patients crushing and snorting pills just a few cars down from where I was eating my sandwich. That plus the months of overhearing patients comparing notes on what they scored and even talking about who they are selling their "script" to has put me over the edge.
Can I get anywhere with this? I have another job so I am not worried about retaliation.
