Peace Harbor Home Health
Measure: Percentage of patients who have less pain when moving around

Time Period Ending:  12/31/2012

Rate: 56%

What We Are Doing:

A thorough evaluation of pain problems is done for each patient admitted to our service. Teaching is initiated for patients who have pain. Pain level is documented by all clinical staff at each visit and reported to the physician when the pain level is not at the patient's goal. 

Peace Harbor has reconvened an interdisciplinary team to evaluate the pain management practices in the agency, research best practice in pain management, and implement strategies to reduce the pain our patients experience with activity.  Efforts will include updated teaching materials for patients, to promote patient participation in pain management.
