I guess that's too bad for me, though, I can't afford to quit. The thing is, we do drug screens at each visit, and send the samples off for analysis. A large number of patients have no noroxycodone in their systems, which basically means they are selling their pills. The first time they are put on a 2 week program, the next time they are dismissed. They always want to argue the results, and insist they "don't do meth" or "they don't even know what suboxone is" and they will waste our time whining and arguing...I've gotten to where I don't listen to them. I hand them their test results and tell them to take it up with the drug testing company which they will own if they can prove that the results that test 96% positive for crystal meth are false.Any of you veterans, how do you deal with these people and keep your sanity? I end up getting flustered and angry. I'm sick of them trying to take advantage of me. The pill heads really know how much the law will allow a pain clinic to prescribe and feel they should get the maximum allowed. We have a few good patients but most of them are just junkies. One was overheard on her cell phone saying I'll have some this afternoon...FOR REAL??? Yes, she was dismissed over her drug test results but the nerve of some of these people is outrageous.One left sobbing today because not only was she nodding off and practically falling out of her chair in the waiting room but she failed for having absolutely no oxycodone or oxymorphone in her system but lots of crystal meth. She was so upset that we waited until she paid her money to send her away empty handed. Well, didn't she do it to herself? But we're the bad guys.I have to review new patient requests and have learned to not only check the database for what they have already been getting but criminal records as well. The managers of the clinic want us to give people a chance but should we really take on patients with numerous drug charges for controlled substances, etc.? I'm coming across a lot of these and have been saying no, citing their criminal history as the main reason. I'm losing faith in humanity. I started with the best of intentions but I was talking to the office manager and we both agreed this job is turning us into the "B" word... If anyone has any tips please share!
