Hi there! Christina, what kind of benchmarks/goals were used for “time to first pain med”? Is there a set time for pain reassessments in the ED pain plans?

We provide our ED with guidelines on how to manage pain for our sickle cell population. For our chronic pain patients, we have documented individualized pain plans in the chart- we have Epic so we use the “care coordination note” which typically pops up as soon as someone opens the chart. Our ED does not typically start PCAs.

I wanted to know if any organizations have a pathway for pain control for Sickle Cell patients that would include a PCA being initiated in the ED setting versus waiting to start a PCA until the patient arrives to an admission unit.
