The Benefits of Pain Management
We believe that people should be able to live without pain. Pain management is essential for comfort and can is accomplished through various treatments, including medication. Many people currently fear opioids, which include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, hydromorphone, etc.
These medications do increase the quality of life for patients when they are administered correctly. Addiction is very rare, less than 1%, and the risks go down when there is careful monitoring, such as the support of a hospice team.
