Personal Use

Thank you for visiting our site.  Please read the following information and submit the form below.  You will be redirected to a page where you will find a link to our scale with instructions.  Be sure to download the scale before you print to avoid printing problems.

Please help us maintain the integrity of the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale by following these simple guidelines:

  • Remember, our scale is used for pain assessment, only.  We do not give permission for use in measuring emotions, moods, comfort, etc. This is essential for our scale's validity.  You will find the Instruction Guide for using the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale on the Downloads page that will follow after you submit the form below.
  • Ours 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.  It should never be used with unresponsive patients or to compare the patient’s face to the scale to determine the level of pain.
  • No modifications should be made to this scale without our expressed permission.  We are intentional about not adding color to our scale, because color is so subjective. If you see a scale with color added, that is a copyright infringement.

This permission is for individual use, only.  If you are interested in reproducing the scale or if you are using this in a professional capacity, please click here for Professional Licensing Information.

You should receive an automatic email response to your web form submission and an opportunity to confirm your email address.  If you do not receive communication, chances are it has been delivered to your junk file or trash or perhaps not delivered at all.  Please email us at [email protected], if that is the case and we will send your information another way.
