Iowa hospitals place limits on painkillers
DES MOINES (AP) — Hospitals in the Des Moines area are imposing limits on painkiller prescriptions to limit abuse of the drugs.
The Des Moines Register reports that Iowa Health-Des Moines plans to join rival Mercy Medical Center in restricting access to painkillers.
