Hello I'm new to you all but have 30 + years in Nursing. I have a background in Federal Corrections
I recently saw my attending for medical problem from nursing, T1 Latex, heart and lung problems.
this vist strated like all others today the office nurse handed me a form and says fill it out and sign it.
It is called a Control Substance Form. I have never seen one befor but have to say I thought I just walked into a drug program.
The thing start out with you need to sign and if you don't sign you will be fired as a pt and the local police contacted!! There was also a place where if you were called into the office by the staff for a **** test or blood draw of pill count you must be there with in 24 hr or the police will be called. All test will me on you
The last one say I wave my right!!!! the doc can talk to anyone family or others about any signs of abuse.
at anything a urine or blood test should show + for illegal drugs the police will be contacted
Well I got oeed off and refused to sign. I an also a Federal Law Enforcement Agent and have my background checked every 5 years as does the wife. Sent some of the form to TBNE they dont handle Clinics. knew they dont haddle Federal agency so what do they handle.
This bugs me in 2 ways 1st as a RN how can we allow this to happen to or pts. We are to stand up for them. everyone is being givin the form no matter age so a 5 year old needs this?
2nd for me the pt. I understand there are many Seekers out there we have all seen them. I have not had a change in med for 10 years yes I take Xanx .5 bid prn after I was beat badly in a Mac unit. and ambean 10 nites out of 30
Is this the norm for out on the streets now if so I have to say Federal i/m do get better us than most of us.
I dont feel giving up any right is a good thing. there are laws in place that cover CS they just dont enforce them. Help me out here it this our current mode of care to or pts or not ans if not point me in the way to get some help as I will not sing and already have been see the dark side of this
