How to use the Doctor is IN

This new feature of TheFilipinoDoctor.com displays a switch panel on your log in page.
On the center of the switch panel, you will find the switches for IN and OUT.

To set your availability for the day, click or tap on either the IN or OUT panel on the switch that you find on your log in page.  This will automatically set all the switches corresponding to every schedule you have for the day.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the day. 

To set your availability for week, click or tap on the link under the panel that reads Set your availability for the week.  This will open your clinics and schedules on the lower part of the current page.  You can now individually set to IN or OUT each of your schedules for the entire week.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the current week. 

All settings for both day and week will reset to “blank” after the day or week is over.

Thank you!

Universal Pain Scale

Pain is the result of a physiological series of electrical and chemical events that occur in the body. When pain receptors are triggered by mechanical, chemical, or thermal stimuli, the pain signal is transmitted through the nerves, spinal cord and to the brain. Pain may come and go or it may be constant. Pain attacks the human body at every vulnerable target such as muscles, bones, and joints.

Acute pain begins suddenly and lasts just a moment and is usually sharp. It serves as a warning of disease or a threat to the body. It may be caused by many circumstances such as surgery, broken bones, burns or cuts, labor and childbirth, and etc. However, unrelieved acute pain, may lead to chronic pain. Chronic pain persists for weeks, months, or years despite the fact that an injury has healed. Common chronic pain complaints include: headache, low back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain, neurogenic pain, or psychogenic pain.

The pain scale is a self evaluation tool that helps patients to assess the severity of pain being experienced. The rating scale is recommended for patients 3 years old and above. Just click on the face that best illustrates the pain you are feeling.
