I had called EMS on the side of the highway extreme headache
Prone to migraines had a bad dizzy spell pullled over to safety
Was totally aware of all my surroundings
Gave all medical info to nurse EMS attending dr including prescribed meds no confusion no reason for urine drug screen to be done no loss of consciousness totally inappropriate no consent signed
All meds found prescribed unfortunately had thc which is also prescribed but not acceptable as RN what are my rights also why and how do I deal with the hospital that did this without my consent and get this under wraps as I am a professional......and word travels fast my dr is very upset and refuses to prescribe my pain meds now and I have a very painful aggressive medical disease of my back called anklyosying spondylitis
And I have been in an acute flare since April and have failed 3 biological medications with terrible side effects..... I have been treated like dirt for years as a result of the use of pain meds let alone have this happen please advise
Thank you

Hi there
The sent over the results to. My family dr .... again no reason for that either usually you are asked if you wish to share info from your visit with the family doc I wasn't even asked....
Customer: replied 2 days ago.
I was in between a funeral viewing and funeral when I received the call from my dr that he has the results....and due to the rules and regulations set forth by our lovely government legislature requires any positive results withbanything other then what is prescribed is grounds for family dr to stop prescribing current narcotics....
So then send the individual to the streets basically sad system we live in
Expert:  Debra replied 2 days ago.

But you provided them with the name of the family doctor, right?
