Staffing Shortage in Pain Management

Effective immediately, due to a temporary shortage of nurse practitioners, the Inpatient Pain Service will limit the scope of its services to the following categories:

  • Patients during the immediate post-operative period, including patients with indwelling epidural catheters or any other catheter dedicated to pain management.
  • Acute traumatic pain (e.g.: multiple rib fractures, etc.)
  • Management of intrathecal pumps
  • Pain management for any patients admitted to PICU, NICU or 4NE
  • Consultations for interventional pain management

The protocol to request a consultation remains the same. The requesting healthcare professional must call ext. 3-5870, state the reason for the consultation, and leave a telephone number to receive calls or text messaging from the IPS. If you prefer, IPS can communicate with you via email.
