Reply To: Pain Scoring – are we all doing this regularly?

Andy Bell

Great comments Sophie.. I think its a really important topic and we just need to keep hammering it home to all staff as anyone really should be able to carry out pain scoring.. It could also be a useful tool for some owners, but that might be a step too far!!

I once remember taking over a case from a colleague who had been pain scoring overnight. When I asked where the patient was painful, they weren’t able to tell me, but had been carrying out pain scoring? I think there are multiple challenges to us getting this right. Hopefully, this is something that will continue to improve over time…
