A "nurse" from a local nursing home called this evening. She had 2 prescriptions for Norco for the same patient, same doctor. They were written on different dates. The first was written almost a month ago, the 2nd was written about one week ago. Pt was scared to take the pain killers which is why neither rx had been filled. 1st rx Norco 5mg, 2nd rx Norco 7.5mg
Are you ready?......Here it comes........
"So, is the 5 stronger than the 7.5?" Jaw dropped open. I think a first or second grader could answer this. Get your number line out lady.
And to think she is dispensing these old people's meds.
