I am Angry at Myths

Believing the myths of morphine are hindering peaceful deaths and triggering inappropriate guilt trips of survivors. The nation wide belief in myths regarding morphine is getting in the way of the dying’s biggest fears, that their pain will not be managed to their preferences.

Some physicians, nurses, medication aides and families are afraid patients will die on their watch because they administer a “comfort drug” such as morphine.

What are you believing?
