Disease Prevention and Recommendation
The Disease Prevention and Recommendation section of the Physical Exam Form is met for one to leave more info and instructions for the patient to follow in order to improve their health in the future and make sure their condition doesn’t worsen.
The Health Maintenance section is met to keep track of all patients immunizations and lab work they have completed as well as all other treatments that need to be scheduled in the future. You will find that although each section is setup already, any of the variables can be changed as pertaining to each patient. There is a section to title each immunization and lab work as well as a date section that one can fill out when the procedure was done, when it will be done, or if the procedure still needs to be scheduled (indicted by “WS” or Will Schedule). There is also a section to leave further comments and notes as well as when the next physical can be scheduled.
ROS & Physical Exam
The ROS and Physical Exam Section are a quick checklist where one can leave further comments or notes as pertaining to more detailed info about the patient such as the cardiovascular or respiratory system, etc. as well as leaving notes on specific body parts such as if the patient had a hernia, etc.
