When we arrived and they saw the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fentanyl</span>
Patch, the first thing they assumed was overdose. They did a tox screen and found no opiates in her system
. The patch had been replaced approximately 24 hours prior. She has been on the fentanyl
Patch (100 mcg) for about 3 years and uses
a tegaderm patch over it to hold it in place. It was on her stomach. She always places the patches on her stomach or upper arm in a fatty area. This is the 4th ER visit in the past 12 months due to withdrawals.
