Here's my pet peeve:

People who come into the ER and say "My back hurttttsss I need some painkillers." And they walk out with a script for Darvocet or Lortab or whatever they want and then other people who have legitimate pain are not being treated properly for their pain (through pain management for example) and get sent home and told to take Ibuprofen. Pisses me off to no end.
I think that's why doctors are reluctant to prescribe pain meds here because of assholes who make the rounds of the local ERs trolling for pills to party with or sell.

Anyone else noticed that people here pull this kind of stuff? I know it happens in other cities but I hear about it a lot here from nurses and other people working in the hospitals.

I don't know how common it is here in Huntsville, but I bet it goes on a lot in many places.

Well expect a lot of arrest made coming up. When the electronic medical records are all interfaced. That will end. And yes, its a pet peeve of mine too, because these people take up valuable space in the ER for truely sick people and help increase the cost of healthcare for every body.
