  5. Drug seekers

  11. Pt diverting pain meds, managers aware, nothing is done!
    Oh they are way ahead of that. They pretend to swallow and spit it down the straw of the chaser and stockpile it that way. But it is easier to control this way, you just don't let them have a...

  25. So you want ME to quit?
