MEDICAL RECORDS AND SICK CALL PROCEDURES

As a medical specialist assigned to an Army medical treatment facility or to a field unit, you want to do your best in providing care to your patients. One key to good patient care is communication. Many times this communication takes place through the use of forms, records, and reports.

The physician and other health care providers rely upon the accuracy of the forms that you prepare in determining the treatment that the patient will receive. You rely upon forms completed by other personnel concerning instructions for patient care.

An understanding of medical forms, records, and procedures is needed whether you are working on a nursing unit (ward) of a military hospital, in a clinic, or in a field unit.
