I meant to write should be able to get a dose of pain medication, not valium.
Ms. Hicks, Valium is not a pain killer, it is for anxiety and is very addictive. If a patient in the ER is in pain for an injury, they should be able to get a dose while there and then be sent to their primary care for further treatment. Also, I fail to see why lower income people using the ER for their primary care has to do with restricting addictive medications. One of the reasons we have such high medical costs is the ER being used for primary care.
