Comfort & Pain Management
Keeping you comfortable and controlling your pain are very important for your recovery. Your nursing team will work closely with your doctor and pharmacist to help keep you as comfortable as possible. You can help us manage your pain by letting your healthcare team know how you feel. We are here for you. Let us help you.
If you are in pain, tell your nurse right away. Ask for pain medicine when you need it, don't be embarrassed or ashamed. Ask before your pain becomes severe. If the pain is not relieved by the medicine we give you or if you are having side effects, tell your doctor or nurse. Don't be worried about taking pain medicines, they are safe and effective when given under supervision.
