props for your props

Don't you love a drug seeker with props?  You know, the one who comes with crutches, braces - neck or knee, etc?   I  have to give them props for their props....very creative.

Here's the thing, drug seekers ultimately are dumb.  They think they are clever, that somehow we won't figure them out.  Some of them even try using another name or rearranging their own name.  The thing they don't realize is that the average ER nurse can spot them a mile away.

To those who don't lie, give their real name, there is the state prescription data base.  Every time you fill a narcotic prescription it is registered.  We all get this perverse sense of satisfaction when we bust one of these fools.

I have had them throw themselves out of our wheelchairs in "pain" (they seem to walk in and wait in registration line without ambulation problems just fine) Unfortunately, in Florida checking the database is not mandatory yet. Many of our ED docs give them what they want to get rid of them for that day. Enablers all!!

I love when peeps bring props. I especially love the visual aids such as "a copy of my last MRI".
