Pain Management Checklist Mobile App

Studies have shown that nursing home residents have substantial pain that is under-treated as a result of suboptimal compliance with guidelines for treating pain in geriatric populations.Poor pain management can trigger survey citations for abuse, violation of residents’ rights (per the self-determination act), and substandard care. In addition, many states have proposed or enacted statutes that address pain management, which has spawned a new trend of lawsuits against health care providers that have inadequate pain management policies and services. The Pain Management Checklist mobile app provides some ways that your staff can protect your residents and facility. GoCanvas has thousands of pre-built mobile business apps in our Application Store
