Pity the fooled!

A recent shift. We started off with a full drug bag, and managed to nearly deplete all our pain relief.
Did everybody really need the pain relief? Pain is something very personal - so if someone seems like they are in pain, they will get some pain relief.
Did everybody really deserve the pain relief? Not my call to make. I'm not experienced enough to say for sure if someone is faking their pain, and I would rather give out a little more than not enough.

I will be interested to see my take on this issue in a couple of years time with more experience under my belt.
