The nurse will monitor you and administer prescription medications as ordered by the physician. Pain management is an important aspect of nursing care, and we will try many methods to move your pain to an acceptable level including warm packs, repositioning, ice packs, non-narcotic methods, relaxation methods, injections, and topical medications. Please know that staff members will work hard to help you find acute pain control with the nurse keeping you informed about your treatment plan. We regret that we cannot refill your chronic pain medications, but we will try to assist you in making an appointment with your primary care provider. Nursing is here to answer any questions or concerns about your plan of care.
