The difference

What’s the difference between being dismissed and being blacklisted? I’ve heard both and I was recently dismissed from my very first Pain Management Clinic for getting medicine from and ER doctor, two times had been directly related to my house burning down on the 16th November in which I lost everything. Now I saw a different doctor at the practice than my normal doc because of the situation. The third time was because I was in so much pain from my heavy periods I was doubled over. That was my dumb mistake but I checked with doctor for the first two however they were okay’d. I also didn’t lie about any hospital visit and my pee text did come back for a different pain medicine for the last one. 

I think that’s why she dismissed me. I told her I didn’t have any of my Tramadol left but she didn’t let me finish as to why I was short however that hardly matters. I assumed I had been taking too many for the reason why I was short but I had separated them into an empty bottle of mine by mistake when I was filling out my weekly pill containers. In actuality I’m only short two days. No need to go explaining that after the fact I just mainly want to know the difference between “Dismissed” and “Blacklisted”

    Same thing I would think.

    Dismissed, released, blacklisted, banned, pw3nd, etc.

    Essentially, what L4_L5 stated is valid, same as what grtgrandma1aneeda70 said.

    You can get dismissed from a pain management practice for a number of reasons, breaking any pain contract you had with them, seeing multiple doctors for medications and/or running short of opioid medications.

    Then it depends on how that practice handles the situation.  Depending on how the write up the reasons for your dismissal can determine if you would be blacklisted by the medical field.  Once that happens, it is close to impossible to find another pain management center or pharmacy that will work with you.  That also includes different states.  With the electronic medical records, information like that can be seen by almost any state that incorporates a system to allow them to view all medical records.

    If you are blacklisted, you want to discuss that with your doctor, explaining the circumstances behind the fact you were short.  Some doctors will be understanding and some will look at it as plain black and white.

    I am not a medical professional. I comment on personal experiences 
  • Dilauro - old Pain Management clinic offered to send my medical records over to my new pain doctor so that’s a plus?

  • I think they always send your records and I don't think a new PM will even see you without them.

    the best thing to do is be completely honest with the new PM.  In all likelihood, they will already know what happened.  That is the only way you will build trust with them.  In the future never get anything filled without their permission ahead of time if possible.  Just do anything and everything to show them you are an open book and can be trusted.  That's the key.

    hope all goes well at the new PM!
