As a patient at Pioneers, we encourage you to:
Ask your doctor or nurse what to expect regarding pain and pain management.
Discuss pain relief options with your doctors and nurses.
Work with your doctor and nurse to develop a pain management plan.
Ask for pain relief when pain first begins.
Help your doctor and nurse assess your pain.
Tell your doctor or nurse if your pain is not relieved.
Tell your doctor or nurse about any worries you have about taking pain medication.
To help determine pain levels and measure changes, a caregiver may ask you to choose a face from a chart.
We believe that total patient care demands attention to the spiritual, as well as the physical and emotional, needs of each patient. The Chapel is available for your use 24 hours a day. Please ask your nurse if you need directions. If you would like to speak with a chaplain or pastor, a member from the nursing staff can contact them for you. Your church or spiritual leader is always welcome to visit you while you are here.
Volunteers contribute many hours of service and financial assistance to Pioneers Medical Center, which is a not-for-profit facility. The services and assistance our volunteers deliver may vary, but they play an integral part in supporting the hospital and the care we provide.
PMC has a wide range of resources to help you take control of your healthcare choices. Living wills, end-of-life decisions, and interpreters for patients who don’t speak English as a first language are just a few of the special services we provide to assist you.
