Is Demerol available in your hospital? When I was at Duke, the only indication is for post-op shivering. That's it. It's limited to anesthesia. Where I am now, though, I asked the medical director not if, but when meperidine would be dropped from the formulary. He said later (after a P&T meeting) that the old guys liked it too much, and that it wasn't going anywhere. So, my question: do you have it, is it limited to specific services, and do you use it?
