An opioid crisis is seen so much in hospitals but working in hospice at times we cannot control our patient symptoms and will need to use more opioids.

Great information on od management. This is the second opioid article I have read tonight. I am surprised that there is not too much information on what is being mandated to help prevent addiction and abuse. In the acute care setting narc scripts will be sent electronically to the pharmacy. The amount prescribed is now less. And now there is a narcotic informed consent that is now signed by the provider and patient. These efforts are promoting a partnership and accountability between the provider and patient.

This was informative. I appreciate the statistics and information about the naloxone.

I found it interesting that the cdc recommends NSAIDs along with psychosocial therapy for chronic non malignant pain whereas I see pts come into the hospital with outside pain contracts and regime that almost always contains opioids as the medication of choice.
