Pain greater than 10/10 does not compute!

Pain is the 5th vital sign.

The currently accepted pain scale is based on a scoring system of zero to ten.

0/10 equals no pain.

10/10 equals worst ever, unbearable, agonizing distress.

13/10 is not allowed.

Even 10+/10 pain is not allowed.

Folks would never report 0-/10 pain for "less than no pain."

I like to keep things as simple as possible.

Therefore, there is no pain greater than WORST EVER, UNBEARABLE, AGONIZING DISTRESS or 10/10.

Got it?
