Our Pain Control Philosophy

At Hospice of North Central Ohio, we use a team approach to manage pain, as we believe emotional and spiritual pain are just as real and in need of attention as physical pain. Our nurses and doctors are knowledgeable of the latest medications and devices used for pain control and symptom relief. Our specially trained social workers and chaplains develop a plan of care to address spiritual and emotional pain.

Through this team approach, and through a combination of medications, counseling, and therapies, our patients are kept pain free and as comfortable as possible. Our success rate in controlling pain is very high. By constantly consulting with our patients, we succeed in our pain management goal to use the amount of medication that controls the pain with the fewest side effects.
