Brief Answer:
it is used to prevent/treat nausea and/or vomiting

Detailed Answer:
H, thanks for using healthcare magic

Zofran (actual drug name ondansetron), is used to treat/prevent nausea and vomiting.

Even if you are not experiencing nausea and/or vomiting now, these can occur in some persons who are using morphine.
In that case, it would have been given as a precaution, to prevent the nausea/vomiting from occurring as a result of the medication or due to your pain

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questios
