Getting a Prescription in an Emergency Room May Become More Difficult in Ohio
When prescription drug dependence on opiate painkillers like oxycodone, hydrocodone and morphine is an issue, the biggest struggle is to find enough pills to maintain that addiction. Many patients resort to getting multiple prescriptions from different doctors. Others get them through fraudulent prescriptions or commit robbery. Still others head to the emergency room.
Why? It’s not difficult to feign a back injury or pain that is difficult to prove and get a few painkillers from an emergency room doctor in a pinch. Especially in metropolitan areas where there are so many people on staff, addicts often get multiple prescriptions for painkillers that they don’t really need.
Ohio Governor John Kasich announced a plan to limit the prescription of painkillers in emergency rooms across Ohio in 2012. The statewide prescription database will be checked before patients get a prescription for any opioid painkillers, and there will be an increase in vigilance when it comes to checking for fake IDs.
