pain .. medication seems to be very hard to get a RX for . I know how strict the drug laws are . But when I was taught in nursing field each person is an individual and should be treated as such, as when it come to pain each individual should be assessed for THEIR own body. Not assessed in a pool of addicts abusing narcotics ! PRN does not mean PLEASE RESTRICT NARCOTICS ! I wish people, Doctors and nurses would assess each person as an individual, not a number or in a group! Not all patients are addicted or addicts !!
