a long time ago lets see we had a pt sent from the police dept. this pt had his neice bring in meds now this was a nursing home but the pt was only in his late 30's 6-3 189 pounds why we had him i don't know. the pt dropped 50 Percodan it took six of us and two nurses to hold him down till the police got there. one nurse got three stiches and he did around 5 grand of damage. i lost my front teeth to an elderly resident with dementia. lately at work we had a dementia pt stab an aide. you dont have to be in a mental hospital to get hurt or witness dangerous behavior.
He was like that after 50 Percodan? Imagine trying to deal with him straight! I guess that high an overdose could kill the man, otherwise, I'd think you would wait until the narcotics knocked him out, and then hauled him off to trauma!
