Product Description

A patient’s self-report is the most reliable indicator of pain. When the patient is unable to verbalize or understand a numeric pain scale, use of a faces of pain assessment tool can prove beneficial. The Faces of Pain set includes six free-standing squeezable rubber heads, approximately 3” x 2½” x 2½”, each designed with a facial expression that depicts a level of pain ranging from no pain to worst pain.

How to Use

During the pain assessment procedure, place the set of Faces of Pain in full view of the patient, preferably at eye level. Ask the patient to select the one face that most closely illustrates the current level of pain or best expresses how the patient feels today. Each facial expression is correlated to the standard numeric pain scale model.

The faces are labeled from 1 to 6 as follows
