[beth mckellar] - Might be useful ;-)
[stephanie randall krentel] - I love 7 and 10, lol.
[donna walker] - HAHAHAHAHA... so love 7 to 10.. Hahahahaha
[heather currier-latulipe] - I think I will use this LOL
[beverly crossan trego] - Lol! From the patient's perspective, it probably seems more accurate!
[melissa avila] - Maybe the patients would get it if we showed them this. Gotta love those who say its a 10/10 and they look super relaxed lol
[jessica faith kidd] - I just love number 7! ; )
[candi allen-lombard] - Pain scale is bogus ..how many times have you walked into room and they request a pain pill fire poison of 10 while they are laughing.. I have pain of 10 im NOT laughing
[emma soos] - I love the Lego one. On a scale of 0- stepping on a small piece of Lego, how bad does it hurt?
[nohemi gracia] - I like this one better lol
[darla reed rea] - This is pretty funny but seriously, I found a really useful pain tool on powerofpain.org. It has a good description of what each level fro 0-10 represent.
[linda gaye harris] - Number 9 on Sunday and Monday! LOL
[diane denney lipsey] - I've seen patients laughing & talking the say their pain is a "9" or "10." Makes NO sense!
[becky turc] - But I bet most people would say "too serious for numbers" and lay in bed and text and no tears or nothing, just like they do when they say 10/10... SO you're telling me you're having 10/10, the worst pain you ever felt, and if we sawed your leg off right now, THIS pain would be worse? I wish I could say that sometimes lol
[kim sprueill-blaylock] - Or when they say they are having pain level 10, so you go get the med and come back to the room and they are asleep....guh
[danielle walton] - can we get this for clinical use please??
[crystal scott whisenhunt] - Sir, how would you rate your pancreatitis pain? 1 - not bad at all....10 - you have just been hit head on by a Mack truck? It's definitely a strong 9, Ma'am!! Well let's get rid of that Mt. Dew and Doritos then, hmm??!!!
[josette tenorio-rivera] - I need that chart in my office!
[d'arcy gebert] - Pain is only what the patient says it is. And tho we may not agree we have to listen to and treat the patent accordingly. One persons 4 is someone else's 10. And yes even drug addicts .
[paulette provost] - Amazingly enough, cancer patients or patients with a history of EXTREME pain will report a number of 5-6 maybe a 7 while patients with a hang nail will report a 10+...freaking stupid!
[fyfy ndeke] - Pain is what the patient says it is, no matter what u see. Everyone has their own way of expressing the pain, just believe on what ur patient tells u. I do that. Looool
[amanda trafford] - This should be used for real in our department. It's funny as. You can question patients pain scores as long as you do it nicely and still be caring.
[loretta a. murphy] - When 1 to 10 just isn't enough...I definitely want one of these puppies lol
[iolda martinez] - Jajaja.. This is good!!!
[molly odell nygren] - Allie Brosche rocks!
[deanna laforce] - I believe a new pain scale should be incorporated, one that utilizes verbal or patients perception of pain, vital signs, and observation when choosing the appropriate intervention.
[arianne mae capaciete] - lol i would preffer using ths one!!!!!
[philipp tessin] - Birgitta Pieper wäre doch was für unser Haus :-)
[kimberlee simmert] - Oh that is so funny.
[stayce finley joyner] - Zero to 10; gimme a #....
[birgitta pieper] - Das brauchen wir!!!!!!! haha!!
[lisa clark] - Nikki Lynne Anders lol i like the bottom version
[janet s johnson-martin] - We need this at the hospital, to actually show the patients they are not having 10/10 pain. They do not have a clue sometimes
[tenille mcsweeney nason] - They forgot the 20s! Those are the numbers I get when I ask a patient their pain level on a 1-10 scale.
[ladyrachel clendenin-long ofglencoe] - Saw this on a t-shirt, love it!
[beverly davis young] - Amen! "They try everything in the book!"
[jo johnson young] - Thinking about printing this out and using it for my pts....
[erasmo ramirez jr.] - Melissa Bowery lol
[patricia seaton] - They're 10 may have been a stubbed toe....worst they've ever had. Your 10 may have been labor or kidney stone. We can't judge their pain by ours.
[terri grosvenor] - Haha...Gottta Love this pain chart!! I like the patients who are calm, relaxed, laughing at a TV show, talking on the phone and when you walk in their room and ask them to rate their pain level, they say a 9-10!! Really?? They always think that works because they say it, and have no other obvious symptoms of discomfort!
[tasha wash] - Me: "0-10, where would you rate your pain?
Pt: "dilaudid has a start number?".....can't make this stuff up!
[patricia anderson] - I try not to complain until the pain reaches 15 !!!
[darlene mazzoni-sanchez] - Love it.. I always tell them to compare the rate of 10 with your hand being slammed the car door, since it seems most of my pace don't understand what I mean by pain scale it helps and visualize what ten is, then they usually change their number to 8 . Lol
[anitra duke] - I really love this pain chart. And as a nurse who has had a tun of pain in jer life please remember that what you feel like is a 10 maybe different for them. I can work passing a kidney stone because I have had them (3-5) since I was 7yrs. I never thrash and scream and I have had many of nurse dought my pain levels be I am just sitting there and only those that truly know me would even know that I am in pain.
[michelle williams] - There pain is off the chart but they look like a 0 or 1! Lol
[theresa rohan] - Rarely hear under an 8, this is great!
[valerie lawlis] - Best pain scale ever !
[jacque dunn] - I'm about a 7- going for the drugs
[jennie l. james] - Lol- Raelene Ruiz
[danielle diggins poffenberger] - I always say 0 is no pain and 10 is writhing on the floor screaming. There are still people who will be sitting there and tell me there pain is a 10.
Nurses Rock: Fun Nursing Photos and Cartoons - 50th Comments
[susan saunders] - I suffered with chronic pain for years, & I have been functional at 8 & sometimes even 9. Because I know what 12 feels like. It is so frustrating & demeaning & demoralizing to those of us that suffer constantly when someone questions our level of pain. Please don't ridicule us because we can sleep when we are having severe pain. For aome of us sleep is the only escape from pain we get
[debora lokken] - Think alliance pts r a 12?
[debora lokken] - Sorry! Misspelled
[vicki kropaczek caro] - Not as funny as it seems
[sher monfore] - I like this chart!
[abigail kwarayi] - Pain ratin scale
[patricia keys] - I was taught that pain is the 5th vital sign. Every patient being assessed by the nurse should be asked if they are having pain, where, how long, what helps/makes it worse etc. Part of our job as nurses is to educated the patient. Teaching them the pain scale of 1-10 and how to use it is important. Judging them is not. Pain is subjective and what may not seem bad to someone is excruciating to another. While I understand that there are plenty of drug seekers out there, newly post op patients probably aren't and should be treated accordingly.
[ina june price] - I like #7.......
[phyllis sinex] - I like it when you have to wake them up, & they tell you how much pain they are in.
[jennifer gordon] - Very good- very funny!
[jamie taylor] - So a pain level of 10 is not someone talking to you and texting someone on their phone? I am so confused. Lmao
[lynn henson] - since most of my residents cannot really verbalize, I have to use the FACES. maybe I should add a few! !
[jamie karbin carr] - This is a more realistic chart!
[jennifer carlson] - I am not a nurse but my mom is. When I am asked to rate my pain, I consider my four children that I gave birth to without an epidural and I consider the surgical hysterectomy I had where even the morphine didn't help.
[catherine leary tidmore rn] - I have patients with a #1 face claim they are having #10 pain.. :p
[dorothy nowak koprowski] - Hey jenn. Give them this to morrow!
[georgia selden] - Stupidest thing ever!!!
[ericka shandale reynolds] - Can we get joint commission to endorse this pain scale?!?! Lol this is too rich!
[michelle clark] - I was watching a Baby Story and the nurse asked the patient who was in labor how much pain she was in. The patient stated she was at a 10. The nurse explained to the patient that a 10 is equivalent to getting your legs cut off with no anesthesia. The patient then changed her level to 7. Yes, people's perception to pain is different but it is important to remind the patient that a 10 is the absolute worse pain ever.
[liane stenholm] - Susan Haswell lmao!!
[tami whitten] - Pain is whatever the patient says it is. If they say 10 I hope you're treating them like it's 10.
[kelly moore] - That is tooooo funny!! You either Hurt of you don't!! My ps 1-3. 1= painful 2= moderate, but can live with it. 3- no pain! SIMPLE!
[amy mumpower] - this was totally hilarious
[glenda clemens] - They all have 12/10 pain where I've worked. :)
[janet lutze] - After viewing some of the above comments, I think a lot more education need to be done to the nurses on what pain is and alternative methods of pain relief. Distraction is a huge pain reliever. If someone is laughing, sleeping, watching TV, it is helping the pain. When the distraction stops, the pain returns.
[janet lutze] - The pain scale should also be revised as it is hard to put a number on different types of pain. Sharp stabbing pain feels different that really bad dull ache. One might number them differently but can be equally uncomfortable for the patient.
[janet lutze] - And how do you deal with intermittent pain? The nurse asks "What is your pain right now?". Now, maybe no pain but in 5 minutes, it might be 10. The scale is too confining.
[neysa kopcsak thornsley] - I'm talking on the phone NURSE ... laughing, watching TV with lights up bright but I assure you that my pain is a TEN!!!!!! Bring me all I can have and baring it ten minutes early damn you! I FLACC 'em as well. Narrate. I hate charting but it's my job .... especially on this subject. You *as a nurse" can tell when people are hurting / sick ... we do have empathy just NO SYMPATHY for the abusers.
[carole griffin binder] - Or I have this 10/10 migraine that's brought me to your ER at 2am, cause I heard that's when it's not to busy here, and I had to finish putting on all my makeup!
[natalie phifer creasman] - I think the numbers are in reverse. The PRS of 10 always looked like the one labeled 1!
[jeannette jackson] - I texted this to my clinical instructor and she enjoyed it!!
[melanie crisp chapman] - 1. You're on fire. I just poured gasoline on your leg and lit you with a match.
2. I am cutting off your leg.
3. I ran you through with a hot poker and twisted it.
4. I am pounding your fingers with a hammer.
[jennifer cobb kearney] - I am very disappointed by many replies on this thread. some of you should not call yourselves RN. shame on you judgmental and heartless people. I've been an RN for40 years. NONE of my patients were allowed to suffer-even of they were drug addicts.
[justina lee] - I so want to show this chart to our Pain Nurse Team!!!
[rebecca hudson-voland] - This is so true!!!
[elizabeth dankanich clarkson] - Well, for the female patients I would ask "do you have children?" and if they said yes I would say "ok, on a scale of 0 to labor pains...." they got it every time lol
[elizabeth dankanich clarkson] - AMEN also Melissa, BUT I do need to add that myself, personally can tolerate a WAY nasty level of pain before I exhibit the behavior of a "10" my 5 could be someone else's 20 as I have been pain since birth from congenital issues. But I hear ya on the people who know that all they have to do is say "I'm a 10" and they'll get the good stuff. And they look calm doing it.
[janice ruffino] - This is hilarious!
[carol nagle] - Its a great chart,now, nursed need to do something about the answer AND follow up on the results of the intervention
[michele stankus] - Dan Hodge Paige Stankus
[susan wiederspohn] - hahahahaha have to share
[nidal al-takrouri] - Wait ....I will ask your Mom.....
[dan hodge] - I had awesome nurses in my last hospital stay. As a patient its amazing what please and thank you will do for your quality of care.
[brizita mehmeti marku] - A pain of 10 is giving birth or getting hit in the balls, depending on the gender....that's how I ask the pts.
[mark delo] - You should be doing that anyway. Its called good practice
[kendal rokicki] - chkmvq Well, I posted earlier in this comments thread and came back because I wanted you all to know how I did! I lost 10 lbs (4.5 kg/0.7 stone) of belly fat in only 6 days and am keeping it off. The results speak for themselves. This diet product is life-changing - thank you. hhchde www.thestjohni.info
[dez dez] - I love all the comments people have written. How I look at a pain scale concerning myself is simple: I have never been at a level 10 and hope I never will be. I can always imagine a person with pain so much worse than I am experiencing......perhaps being burned over 90% of your body and having a debridement. My great grandfather went through this after being burned in a plane crash. Now there is pain for you!
[cara ferris] - I will have to try the being mauled by a bear!!
[susan warra munoz] - Calling all nurses, looking to expand my business and looking for business partners!' All my current business partners are nurses and are doing very well financially. Inbox me for more details!! Oh and by the way I Partnered with the 2 doctors who created Proactiv Acne Solution, want to know more, inbox me:)
