There is a pain-management doctor at the “hospital” who surprised us last week by announcing that he wants to put my son on methadone instead of Oxy’s.
Max’s reaction was, “No, I don’t want to be addicted to methadone!” I decided to ignore Dr. Z, a tense Iranian guy who wears a Jewish skull cap. But on Friday, he came back to warn that he’ll be ordering methadone on Monday.
When Max asked, “What am I supposed to do when I get out of here and I’m addicted to methadone?” Dr. Z answered: “No problem, you come to my office and I’ll write you a prescription.”
Do you hear what I hear???? I hear a doctor drumming up clientele at an acute care hospital. Is this ethical?!? Do you think for a minute that I’m going to let this cunt fuck up my kid????
I have notified the attending physician and the case manager that under no circumstances will Max accept methadone. We made a sign to put up over his bed that says NO METHADONE.
If it’s not rabid squirrels, it’s a methadone pusher. It is fucking unbelievable.
