pain management post c-section

I am trying to develop pain management order sets for our EMR and am looking for guidance. What do you do in your facilities to allow RNs to assess and manage pain using combination of motrin and opioid post C-section? Thanks in advance,

Our order set has parameters. If we want to give an opiod though, we discuss with anesthesia.

Our hospital worked with the pharmacy and developed a multifaceted approach. First, there are standing orders for acetaminophen and ibuprofen around the clock. 16 hours post duramorph, oxycodone is available for moderate to severe pain (5mg ,10mg). Lidocaine patches are also prescribed after surgery and are placed around the incision site/dressing.
