- Administer 2mg morphine IV prior to the procedure.
- Wait until after the procedure and administer 4mg morphine IV.
- Ask the physician for a new order.

The patient is allowed to have 2-4 mg of morphine every 2 hours. Although the patient is not reporting any pain now, the nurse should plan ahead, knowing that the dressing change is going to cause the patient pain and pre-medicate the patient. Providing medication after the procedure will do nothing to manage the pain during the procedure.
