Inoperative femoral fracture excruciating pain

Patient is 70 y/o morbidly obese male with 20% cardiac output, diabetic, multiple medical issues including multiple MIs requiring a defibrillator implant, who fell approx. 2 weeks ago, experiencing femoral surgical neck closed fracture. Due to his medical acuity, no surgery is being planned. Patient is now experiencing extreme pain in hip/groin/knee area despite being heavily medicated with morphine. He essentially is lying non-mobile in hospital bed. The appropriate mattress system is being utilized.

Are there any orthopedic solutions for this extreme challenge?
