Your Comfort Menu

Providing you with a healing environment that is clean, quiet, and comfortable is important. Our goal is to help you control your pain and provide many comfort options so that your experience is the best it can be. The following  comfort menu is offered to help you and your health care team manage your pain.

Please discuss these options with your nurse and/or doctor and describe your pain so that we can identify the source and best options for you. You know better than anyone how you’re feeling, so we hope this menu makes it easier for you to talk to us about your pain control throughout your stay.
