He Says/ She says, Who's in Charge? - page 3

I have a question, guys, and I want brutal honesty...I don't want to quit my job. I love it. But I will leave if this mess continues. As I have mentioned, I work in a clinic that dispenses... Read More

    Well I am glad you got an apology. I would start looking if nothing else. I literally just quit my job because of nonsense like this. Everyone in the office needs refills on vicodin and xanax. Been on the mess for years with no hope in sight of them coming off of them. Its a group practice so when I don't give them the meds, they come back in a few days and see Dr. so and so and get it. Mind you, positive UDS for cocaine and marijuana and negative for opiates and benzos.....really? WHERE DO THEY DO THAT AT! Its all about a dollar. They get these pts to come back month after month and it generates volume. I told my OM that I would rather starve than to partake in crime. Because at the end of the day its wrong as two left shoes to give ppl narcotics just for the sake of making money. No objective data to support the need to be on narcotics at all. It was ridiculous!

    I get that you love what you do, that's great! But this behavior is not going to get any better. Practices are being closed left and right for things like this and providers are going to jail. Its not worth it. Im proud that you did the right thing in the first place and I encourage you to keep practicing within the guidelines...not just doing whatever the OM says to do. What? Really right now. She sounds insane! Its your license and not hers. We have the duty to do what's right for our pts regardless of who agrees with it.

    She's an OM why was she part of this decision making process at all. Im glad you got some vindication but I dont see the culture of that clinic changing. I would look around and start freshening up on my negotiating, interviewing skills. Somehow I dont think this is going to be the last post we see from a ****** off (and rightly so) Angelfire

    NPAlby is right. The problem isn't this incident (which isn't singular, you post these issues about once a month), the problem is an unhealthy workplace culture and inappropriate relationships. None of the rest of what you posted is your problem and they will all be just fine without you. We all like to think our patients and colleagues would be lost without us, but let's be honest, they did fine before we got here and they will do fine when we are gone. None of us is irreplaceable. Save yourself. Get out.

    Glad this incident worked out for the best, but I have to concur with Blue and NPAlby, this is going to happen again and again and again until you decide to change jobs. Make a plan, you decide if it's find another job, go FT at the PRN, or whatever and move on. This is no way for a professional to be treated and irregardless of what is going to happen at this clinic, you need to protect yourself first.

    This is such an important point. You are not a martyr and a job is a job. Get out and save your license.

    Strongly recommend you seek a place to practice elsewhere. If policy says x and practice does y then you are in a very bad position should there be a negative outcome, audit, or legal action taken. Get out now.
