i am wondering if a percocet or an oxycontin drive thru right in the waiting room would be the answer. then perhaps, we would have the time to give quality care to our patients who are really sick. our er uses the pixis and computerized mar's. the doc orders a drug, you have to wait, wait, wait, and then go to the pixis, get a witness for a waste (if you don't need all of the pre measured dose), and then give the pain patient his dose. never mind the fact that on the way to the pixis you have 6 other things that suddenly need to be done and that pain patient has sent each of his 6 visitors individually at 5 minuet intervals to complain that the 2 hour er stay is rediculous and that he missed his dinner and wants you to fix him something to eat.by the time you get to the patient, the award winning draumatic preformance is simply breath taking!now i know that some pain is true. but if i have a kidney stone, an acute appendix, labor pains, or chest pain, the er nurse shouldn't have to come out to the smoking area, tell me to put out my cigarrette, put down my big mac and accompany her to a room where my vs are 120/80 - 70 - 16!thanks for allowing a "newbw" to vent!
