I tell people this stuff in the emergency room, straight up, when they want admission to the hospital and it's not indicated. A hospital, I say, is a great place to be if you're critically ill, and a terrible place to be if you can be treated safely at home, keeping you within your family, familiar surroundings, and the flow of your life.
There are no Dilaudid PCAs at home, though, so I lose that argument more often than not.
