I think not..

So a lady calls the ER tonight in a panic crying telling me that she is in horrible pain and I need to call her primary Dr at home to get an order for her medicine.."the only one that works!"

I inform her of course that I will do no such thing.. We would be more than happy (Ok so I lied) to see her in the ER eval her and our Dr will decide what med to give, but I am not calling a PCP especially when she wasn't even here and he wasn't taking call.

This brought on another sobbing episode about how only he knew how to treat her pain yada yada... Ok I give. What is the only thing that works for you?

"Dilaudid 12mg IM!!!"
Oh yeah I am right on that...
