pain relief

OK so I'm an up and coming LPN and my mom just had a hysterectomy. Should I wake her up every 4 hours to take her pain meds?  She's on motrin in between doses of her pain meds I know in the hospital I would have to for my patients. What should I do I'm so worried about her she said one of her nurses didn't give her the pain meds during the night and she woke up in a lot of pain. I don't want my mom to experience that again but I don't want to overdose her she's currently she denies pain I gave her pain meds at 12 and motrin at 3. Will she be OK till 8 ?

Seems like it to me.  If she wakes up in pain, give her the meds.
