Really???? They criticized you for that??? I have given the iv Morphine while the patient is taking the po Percocet. Of course, pain management is my passion, so I am probably over zealous. If someone has cancer pain, they should be treated!!! If someone is tolerant to meds, then the "norms" are out the window! One or two milligrams of morphine for a chronic pain patient or a cancer patient who has been on opioids is like injecting normal saline. If we don't want to create patients who are tolerant to opioids, then we should prescribe the darn things. Someone who is already on MS Contin is not going to get pain relief from a couple milligrams of Morphine or 0.5 mg of Dilaudid. You know what? We are not here to wean people off of pain meds! If they can tolerate it, and they need it, I give it. Of course, I do not work "the floor" anymore, so my view point may be a little off.
