Painnurse2

  1. Not being terribly computer-savvy, I am posting this introduction in hopes of linking with other nurses struggling with pain managment for their patients.
    With 25 years in nursing, mostly critical care/PACU, I have been working in a Pain Managment clinic for 6 years. I am not the hospital pain service coordinator-an army of one-and have discovered huge reluctance on the part of first-line staff to address pain in the patient. The answer is not always more medication!
    I would love to hear from clinical staff about their experiences with pain managment-what works in your hospital, what doesn't, and why.
    Looking forward to lots of discussion-
