South County Hospital is using alternatives to opioids for many of its surgical patients. The idea is to get to the pain before it gets to the patient. This new protocol called the opioid-sparing pathway-- has been in place at South County Hospital since December 2017 for its orthopedic patients--and since then they've seen a major decrease in the use of opioids. Now they're planning to expand this protocol to include other surgeries at the hospital.
