We hope your visit to Children's Hospital of the Greenville Health System is a very good one and that your child does well while you are here and at home afterward.
Pain control is very important. Good pain control not only makes your child more comfortable but also helps your child heal faster. It may also help to keep other problems or complications from occurring. Please help your child's doctors and nurses choose the best way to manage your child's pain.
For the child (to discuss with parents or guardians)
Pediatrics--heating pads, cold packs, relaxation breathing, distraction, games, music
Neonatal ICU--swaddling, touch, music
For the parents
The doctors and nurses at Children's Hospital want to work with you and your child to help measure and manage his or her pain correctly. While it may not be possible to eliminate all pain, we will strive to make your child as comfortable as possible.
