Dilaudid iv in early pregnancy?

  1. We have a lot of pregnant women coming in with "abdominal pain" of unknown origin. Even when all their tests come back negative our docs are still ordering dilaudid iv every 3 hours. They ask for it faithfully every three hours!! I feel like i am potentially harming their baby if i give it as ordered! Is this safe practice?
