Many Pennsylvania residents may prefer to entrust their health care to physicians whose practices have a "small town" feel. The problem is that some doctors who favor traditional (some say, old fashioned) ways of record keeping, or allow patients to receive care without worrying about insurance, may run into legal complications if problems arise. A doctor in another state understands this all to well. In fact, his situation resulted in a licensing board stripping him of his license to practice medicine.
With few exceptions, it often takes very little time before you realize you are in an exhausting, thankless job. This may be especially true for nurses. Working as a nurse means being on your feet for many hours, dealing with difficult patients and demanding doctors, and risking exposure to illness and injury.
It's normal for most Pennsylvania doctors to write prescriptions on a daily basis. However, a situation in another state makes it evident that if authorities think a particular doctor has written too many prescriptions in one year it may lead to medical licensing trouble. The doctor in this case apparently wrote thousands of opioid prescriptions in a single year's time.
