Making the pain go away

I was called to help the other nurse at the other ward to sponge bathe a patient who was on complete bed rest. The patient is a consultant in our hospital who had an accident. Since she is at time in terrible pain due to broken bones, she was advised to use heated mattress pads that help her relax her muscles. As a doctor, she does not want to solely depend on narcotics to ease her pain away. I admire her for that.
