Are narcotic pain contracts legal and when a patient refuses to agree can a physician stop established narcotic pain management therapy knowing it will has caused harm to the patient?

Opiate agreement contracts are not typically legal contracts. They are a means to establish boundaries between you and your physician. Depending upon the state, your physician may dismiss you for no reason. Opiate withdrawal is not always harmful. Typically a trained qualified pain physician will try to wean you from opiate medications depending upon how egregious the opiate violation may have been. If the physician cannot get good information from the patient on current medication ingestion, this can be difficult. Of course death from opiate overdose is always more harmful than surviving withdrawal.

Will emergency room staff sedate a male patient for urinary catheterization if he will absolutely not consent any other way?

No one. It is called assault and battery. Writing an order for forced sedation is a very legal matter and the one who writes the order is the one who will have to do it and no one else. That would be the physician assigned to the patient. However, where a patient is deemed incompetent to respond to questions and cannot vocalize or is unconscious this is a 'clinical decision' and an order to cathetarize would be followed. If there is a standing legal order to not cathetarize, there is literally nothing the ER staff can do even if it will save the life of the patient. Yes, it has happened where people of a certain set of religious beliefs refuses transfusion of blood or of blood products. The staff continues to try and save the life of the patient with any other means necessary. Violation of the patient's rights is a criminal matter and the police automatically get involved.
