Advanced Heath Assessment Documentation Tutorial

In each of the Shadow Health (SH) Assignments, you will be asked to complete a narrative note as part of the grading criteria. Narrative or progress notes are often a new skill. This document is provided to assist students in understanding how to write a narrative note. Shadow Health refers to these notes as Provider Notes.

Documentation of patient care is essential to quality and safety of care. Much of the clinical documentation is completed electronically using point and click tools to describe the patient condition (Lindo, et al., 2016). Often computer prompts fall short of fully describing the patient condition. Other situations such as lack of technology, electrical outages, system hacking, failure of equipment, and any number of situations which may interfere with normal electronic documentation may require a narrative nurses/progress note. Nurses must be able to clearly communicate patient information with everyone on the health care team to ensure quality and safety of care (Lindo, et al., 2016).

Documentation must be clear, paint a picture of the patient, and provide measurable concise information in a timely manner. The information communicated must be able to be understood by others and provide enough information to understand if a change has occurred in the patient condition and to clearly communicate all treatments, interventions, and therapies received by the patient and/or planned for the patient. Documentation also serves as a legal record of care (Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2007).

Documentation begins with subjective data/information. This is information the patient, family member, or caregiver may provide if the patient is unable to communicate which includes such data as the history of present illness (HPI), the past history- allergies, medications, medical surgical & social and the review of systems (ROS). Objective data/information includes the physical exam, observations and measurements obtained during the examination of the patient. Objective data also includes vital signs, laboratory and diagnostic results (Bates, 2017, pg.7)

Subjective vs. Objective Data-As you begin to acquire data from the patient interview and physical exam, it is important to remember the difference between subjective and objective information. Symptoms are the subjective concerns of what the patient tells you of their experience. Signs are the objective findings from your observations. (Bates, 2017, pg.6). Sequence of data is documented in the manner it is collected from the sequence of the examination. Physical examination follows a cephalocaudal sequence with the cardinal techniques of inspection, palpation percussion and auscultation (Bates, 2018)

Subjective information assists in understanding the patient condition and provides a basis upon which the nurse d

Health History Tips & Tricks: …

Student: Hello!

Diana Shadow: Hi. I’m Preceptor Diana. I will explain the details of this

assignment and your objectives, just as a preceptor would in real life. Pay

close attention to this information as it will help guide your exam. At the

end of this prebrief, you will answer a short question about the upcoming

assignment. During the simulation, you may return to these instructions at

any time by scrolling to the top of your transcript.

Student: What is the situation?

Diana Shadow: Your patient is Tina Jones:, a 28-year-old African American

woman who has just been admitted to Shadow General Hospital for a

painful foot wound. Your role in this simulation is that of a healthcare

provider who will take Ms. Jones’ health history, a key component of her

admission process.

Student: What are my objectives in this


Diana Shadow: A health history requires you to ask questions related to

Ms. Jones’ past and present health, from her current foot wound to her

pre-existing conditions. You will also want to review Ms. Jones’ systems,

psychosocial history, and family medical history. These assessments

together will give you a comprehensive picture of Ms. Jones’ overall

health. If you discover any disease states, ask about symptoms and the

patient’s experiences of them. Your questioning should cover a broad

array of the symptoms’ characteristics. Throughout the conversation, you

should educate and empathize with Ms. Jones when appropriate to

increase her health literacy and sense of well-being. Regardless of

whether you have assessed Ms. Jones previously, ask all questions that

are necessary for obtaining a complete health history. While you should

communicate with patients using accessible, everyday language, it is

standard practice to use professional medical terminology everywhere

else, such as in documenting physical findings and nursing notes. You

may complete the exam activities in any order and move between them

as needed. After obtaining Ms. Jones’ health history, you will complete an

information processing activity. You will identify and prioritize diagnoses,

then create a plan to address the identified diagnoses.
