***  Nearly all of the hospitals need the doctors to sign a special form for every single patient visit (96.4%). *** 

 

the actual entire paragraph reads

 

"

Nearly all of the hospitals need the doctors to sign a special form for every single patient visit (96.4%). However, some community hospitals used other patterns. Ten community hospitals permit doctors to sign only on the first visit, thereafter the nurses can prescribe under doctor supervision. Only two community hospitals and one medical school hospital do not require the doctor to sign a special form."

 

 

the post i responded to was about if family or caregivers can pick up medications on behalf of sick people

 

"From Table 5, many hospitals permit caregivers to receive oral opioids on behalf of patients (36.7%). In contrast, some hospitals totally prohibit the caregivers to receive oral opioids on behalf of patients (22.1%). "

the post i responded to was about if family or caregivers can pick up medications on behalf of  terminally  sick people. I fixed it for you because you seem to have missed the fact that the article you cite is about Palliative care!

Sorry, it seems many are unaware of what goes on here.  I can buy Codeine readily over the counter at several pharmacies in Pattaya.

Tramadol, codiene, valuim no problem.

since when are terminally ill people not classified as "sick people". Other diseases like RA to cite one can and do receive palliative care.

 

out of curiosity do you have healthcare background?

the option also is to go to a government hospital non specialist general medical clinic where the consult fee is much less and result same.

and now the definitive answer to the dilemma in the op; doctor confirmed that nurse could have/ should have contacted him and or left a message on his system about patient and without any ado would have indeed renewed the prescription, yes, without an additional office visit-consult.

 

this confirms what my usa doctor friend thought aka "no brainer" but the problem in thailand is that "no brainer" takes on enhanced meanings.   could be lazy nurse or robotic limited thinking ability or even hospital internal agenda to generate more income.
