Hi! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been a member of allnurses since Apr 8th, '11. I have no blogs or journals to follow, but you are welcome to find me on the threads I follow, where I love humor and silliness to counter the seriousness of life. Feel free to chime in. Currently work PD/Geriatrics.

    My very elderly pt with increasing dementia looked at her dear friend (of 20+ years) as she approached her. She said to me from the side of her mouth, "Dear God! Where did you dig up this one? He looks half dead!"

    She also said, talking to an empty recliner, "Well, you see, it's very taxing for the committee to have a midget take charge ."

    She had been sitting silently for some time, and apropos of absolutely nothing she said, "How did they get so much stuff​ up Cal's old patootie?"

    Elderly dementia resident with a number of co-morbidities,came back from two codes and remained full code...Still verbal,completely immobile per baseline.Her bed was beside the window,every time we turned her to face it she would panic and scream"I'm falling out of the g##d### window,come quick,bring orange juice"....Loudly...repeatedly....
    If we'd all only known orange juice can keep a person from falling! Think of all the incident reports we WOULDN'T have had to fill out!
    "Fall Risk"? order 5 oz OJ po qid!

    And here, in a Top Ten Hit by the Blue-dee Moo's is another analogy:

    I was recently taking care of a pt with alzheimers/dementia. This pt never made any sense when she talked. Then one day, in a brief moment of clarity she said, "To love is nothing, to be loved is something, but to be loved by the one you love, is EVERYTHING" then it was back to babbling...
    Pretty profound!

    I had a pt.like that once, her sentences seldom held together ( carrots growing in the walls?). Anyway, she was babbling on as usual, when suddenly she focused on my face, brushed my hair away from my forehead, and said "You know, dear, you really should trim. your bangs." My mouth dropped open in surprise. She never said a coherent thing again!

    I would be quite amenable to any available alternative therapies like you mentioned.
    But, NOT EVERYONE is abusing their prescriptions. Some people are actually able to use the meds, PRN, during an acute episode of pain, for the reason given, without taking any more than prescribed, and have no problem taking/using it for the time period prescribed, and then, even if there are 'leftover' Vicodin tablets or whatever, stepping down to an OTC.
    Simple.
    We are not all raging addicts whose only desire is more, more, MORE...pills, dosages, etc.

    Medication is medication when it is used as ordered, with discrimination, for a finite period.
    Drug-seeking is certainly a problem because some are more into getting 'high'.
    But 'some' does not equal all.

    Professor Do is the Topic Police, especially on threads he started.
    It's like when yer at the movie theater and the usher comes down the aisle with his flashlight which he shines on you and sez, "Get your feet off the seat in front of you."

    That "High BMI Panniculus Retractor" advertisment (that you updated ad-light folks prolly don't see) is most decidedly NOT appropriate to this thread, but it is a real, genuine, bonafide 100%
    NUISANCE!

    'Scuse me, teacher! Teacher? Is that "NOS" or No.5, as in Chanel perfume? And that made me think of "Love Potion #9" which made me think of Sandra Bullock who was a 'new face' at that time and her character was a geek in the movie... Love Potion #9, that is.
    Surely it wasn't another typo/pun.
    So if it wasn't "Psychosis Nose", what's "NOS" mean or stand for?
