My father was given morphine drip because his cancer was terminal. Is this normal and why wouldn't a nurse at a rehab facility notify the doctor earlier at the families request to give him pain medication. They were giving him Tylenol every 4 hours, which wasn't working. I realize he would had died eventually, but don't you think administering tylenol only increased the intensity of his pain? I just don't understand the standard practices at these facilities for patients like my dad. We couldn't move him because his insurance would not allow that.
