This came in from a loyal reader of this blog:
You may find this follow up to be interesting, regarding the issue of various hospitals in South Carolina posting posters that say, “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Narcotics” with a red “X” across a bottle of prescription medication, that were designed to be posted in hospital emergency department waiting rooms.
It seems that rather than focusing on the potential benefit of discouraging the inappropriate seeking of narcotics, such posters were viewed at the Federal level as potentially deterring patients with legitimate need for pain meds from seeking care.
I find it very interesting. The truth is, though, that they could have come up with better posters. How about some of you other readers submit some ideas here?
