What We Are Doing:

A comprehensive pain assessment is completed at each visit by each discipline. Home Health Aides are trained to notify the Nurse Case Manager if our patients are experiencing pain. Pain control measures are explored and implemented with each patient who is experiencing pain. The physician is informed about each patients level of pain and any concerns regarding either increasing pain or pain that is not improving.
