Be Prepared


The Goal is to Help Families with Medical event Preparations.

Describing pain help needs is a medical event preparation skill everyone should have. A lot of pain happens at home. It is wise to work on this skill before loved ones need it desperately. This training tool is for family based pain care. Children near one year old have been able to sign “pain” and point where.

Reduce Family Stress

    This one of a kind book was created by three Moms for people who need pain management but are:  too young, too memory challenged, overwhelmed by being asked to rate their pain on a 10 level scale,  or confused  by emojis. Commonly used  pain scales require remembering a previous pain experience and comparing it.   Those scales were tested on children without separating non-readers. Our scale is simpler and faster to use for everyone.

Families using My Pain Alert(TM) Scale have saved time and effort getting a child or family limited communicator’s pain under control.  Little children were able to  direct their parents, so the best action could be done immediately.  Older children came out of surgery  requesting the exact pain management they needed, resulting in a shorter than previous hospital stay.

Older people can benefit from My Pain Alert. Our MPAS+ (My Pain Alert Scale Plus) scale is easiest to use and is ADA friendly.



Are there other tools for parents to teach their child how to manage pain?

 No.  We took on this creative challenge  because it was going to be years before our little guy had the working memory and experience base to use a typical pain scale to get his needs met.

Can I buy it in a store?

You can order it through any bookstore.  We would like our purse size revision and disposable toys to be available in hospital gift shops.  Let your local shop manager know about My Pain Alert.
