"Pain Free Hospital" should be a new Anesthesiologist Domain. It is because the anesthesiologist is the most knowledgeable physician in pain control during the operation as well as in the recovery room. There is no reason why to stop this pain treatment in the wards. As mentioned by the American Society of Anesthesiologists Task Force on Acute Pain Management: "Availability (24 hours) of anesthesiologists". A profound adjustment in the "pain free hospital" project is needed based on the availability of an anesthesiologist around the clock and not relying on other physicians or nurses.
