This good work is impacting care across BBC

Jim McKernan, Employee

Today we recognize Dr. Lins, Dr. Angel, and the entire anesthesia team for creative, best practice work on pain control.

Recently, the Emergency Department (ED) was challenged to serve a patient whose significant injuries were causing severe pain. The patient had existing medications which eliminated the use of any pain killing opiates – and added complications which ruled out other pain options.

The ED contacted anesthesia for help.  Dr. Angel and another team member came to the Emergency Department, worked with the patient, created a special pain block and greatly reduced the patients pain.

Thanks to our Anesthesiologists, CRNAs, and the entire anesthesia team for their ongoing efforts to provide non-narcotic pain control for complicated, high risk patients. This good work is impacting care across BBC – more to come!
