In recent years, the opioid epidemic has been a key catalyst in changing the medical standards for treating both acute and chronic pain. Instead of relying heavily on narcotics for pain management, practitioners are not encouraged to adapt a non-pharmacologic, non-opioid approach to analgesia. While many guidelines have been set to standardize outpatient pain management, the rules surrounding inpatient analgesia are limited or lacking.
