People facing life threatening illnesses often require pain management. Most patients are more afraid of the side effects of the pain rather than the pain itself. This fear intensifies the impact of pain in their life, making them succumb to the diverse effects quickly.
There’s always a possibility that the pain might affect the patient adversely and that’s why managing it holds grave importance. Keeping the pain under control can mean everything to the patient and hence palliative care staff needs to be equipped with the right techniques to take care of their patients.
The palliative care division at Haym Salomon helps maintain patients’ quality of life, ensures their comfort even during the most difficult time of their illness, provides a stress free environment and offers emotional support.
The caregivers are compassionate and it shows in their everyday duties. The bond they have with their patients helps a great deal in aiding the emotional aspect of pain management.
Communication with families can contribute a lot in terms of emotional support. The caregivers at Haym Salomon aren’t just concerned about their patients – to them patients’ families matter equally.
Emotional and Physical Pain Management
Physical care is definitely the number one priority for patients in palliative care but that’s not where the process ends. For many patients, emotions run high and without proper support, their overall wellbeing is in danger.
At Haym Salomon, our team of on-hand psychiatrist and psychologists makes sure the patients remain in a healthy state of mind. They realize the importance of relieving their patients of the emotional stress and they work relentlessly on the patients and their families as well.
The physical rehabilitation at Haym Salomon’s palliative care aims to cater to the medical needs of each patient. Since physical rehabilitation is a big component of palliative care, our staff works rigorously to manage pain and ensures patient comfort.
Numerous physical care services are provided at the facility ranging from conducting laboratory tests to carrying out physical therapies. All medical issues of patients are taken care of by our team of specialized caregivers, doctors, nurses, therapists etc.
The caregivers start the process by assessing the level of pain of each patient. Depending on their condition, the needs of patients are prioritized. The stimulus for the pain is recognized and the caregivers, then, assess how the patient’s mind perceives that particular catalyst of pain.
After assessment comes the monitoring part. In order to gauge the intensity of the pain and the patient’s reaction to it, caregivers carefully monitor the pain and its effects on the patient.
Managing pain with medications is not always the first option applied. It is used when it becomes absolutely necessary. Caregivers come up with pain management strategies to ensure patients’ comfort and only when this fails to alleviate pain and give the desired results, medication is started.
At Haym Salomon, our patients are our priority and that’s a rule all caregivers live by. The cutting edge technology at the facility aids the facilitation of quality care provided at the rehab. We care for our patients in every way we can, and we do so tirelessly.
