  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to show the impact of a pain diary on the communication of pain by pediatric patients. Participants will be given a pain diary after consent and asked to complete the record each time they have pain. A survey about the efficacy of the pain diary will be taken prior to discharge by the nurse, physician, patient and parents. The hypothesis is that the pain diary will improve the communication.
