While in the recovery room, he received 10 mg of morphine sulfate intravenously for incisional pain. Thirty minutes ago, he complained of mild incisional pain but then drifted off to sleep. He is now awake and complaining of moderate to severe incisional pain. His orders include the following pain relief order: morphine sulfate 8–10 mg, IV push every 3 hours for pain. It has been 2½ hours since Mr. Jones’ last pain medication. What would you do?
