Healthcare providers are required to ask the 1-10 scale question and get in trouble for not documenting it. It’s usually documented with the vital signs (ie. blood pressure, pulse, respirations, etc). The pain level is subjective, someone’s 10 maybe someone else’s 2. The goal of asking to to measure how well treatment (pain meds, position of comfort, splinting, ice/heat, etc) is relieving the pain.
