Off Script- You might not want to be so hasty in writing off-hand prescriptions for your friends and family.
Conclusion We went into medicine to help people. It seems so easy to just write the antibiotic prescription when a nurse says she has a UTI and she tells you that she even dipped her own urine. Don’t get me wrong: having the privilege of writing prescriptions is a perk of the profession. However, we need to follow the policies that we’ve agreed to through our board of medicine (appropriate evaluation and documentation), not use hospital equipment for work not involving hospital patients, and be aware of the malpractice risk when we care for people off the books.

I Have Morning Sickness PTSD
I threw up every day for 9 months when I was pregnant with my daughter six years ago. The medical term for severe morning sickness is "hyperemesis-gravidarum" and until Princess Kate made it evening news, many people didn't understand how incapacitating it is. For the first three months, I was bedridden and every morning felt like Groundhog's Day meets The Hangover. Everyone marveled at my growing bump and glowing skin; I was supposed to be euphoric but I existed in a torturous, alienating sick twilight zone where every morning felt like the worst hangover of all time. My 5am alarm clock was a combination of bar...

BOSTON (CBS) – Most insurance companies require us to take cheaper, generic drugs when they are available, but the I-Team discovered a major drawback to these medicines that doctors and pharmacists don’t warn their patients about. If patients are harmed by the drugs, they have little or no recourse in a court of law. The Steele family of Foxboro is hoping their story will help make a meaningful change for thousands of Massachusetts residents who take generic drugs. Rowan Steele was born last November, two-and-a-half months early. But that wasn’t the biggest hurdle she would face. She had a congenital hea...
