Med A - Pain Mgmt

  1. 0 I have resident that just came back from the hospital 1/2 and started on pain mgmt - dilaudid PRN q4hrs and receiving it at least 2x a day now. I initially skilled her under MED A for pain mgmt, but on 1/8 she was started on Vanco for Cdiff, so I extended her. Now, can I cut her from MED A? I think I'm skilling her for pain mgmt for too long and Cdiff is not really skillable. Can I cut her? As always thank you for the help!

    Assuming the IV med is d/c'd and no persistent diarrhea (risk of dehydration, maceration/pressure ulcer, etc.) - it is safe to say yes. Skilling pain with pain med alone can be a stretch.
