Thank you for your interest in using the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale (FACES Scale). Please help us maintain the integrity of the FACES Scale by following these simple guidelines:

  • Remember, our scale is used for physical pain assessment only. We do not condone its use in measuring emotions, moods, comfort, etc. This is critical for our scale’s validity.
  • It is a self-assessment scale, so the patient needs to be able to understand the instructions and select a face that illustrates the pain they are experiencing.
  • The FACES Scale should not be used by third parties, such as parents, healthcare professionals, or other caregivers, to assess a patient’s pain.
  • No modifications to the scale can be made without permission from the Wong-Baker FACES Foundation, including the addition of color.
