I explained to him that our providers do not prescribe pain medications at the strengths which he has become accustomed to receiving. I went on to explain that statements of self harm and/or intent to harm another has to be reported since we are mandated reporters, additionally no providers will give pain medications if they told that the patient is suicidal, first the threat of suicide must be addressed before any medication can be prescribed.
