Enhancing pain scale effectiveness

I’ve never really understood the utility of the pain scale. I understand that certain certifying bodies mandate its use and therefore we’re required to use it, but for me, when people consistently rate their pain at 11 or 13 – I never understood how I was to use this.

Seems patients have difficulty with it as well. This gentleman, however, has nailed it.

Sometimes you just need a laugh. Enjoy.
