Patient Complaints are one of the most important items to complete in order to properly access a patient and track their ongoing progress.
Practitioners will often track:
- Patient Name
- Title of Complaint
- Onset Date
- Onset Location
- Priority - Low, Medium, High, Urgent
- Status - Active, Inactive, Discharged
Create a patient complaint either from the patient's profile or create a complaint right from a chart.
How to Add a Complaint from Charts
Open a Patients profile, and click on the Chart tab.
On the right side, click on the [+Add] button located in the Chart.
How to Add a New Complaint While in a Chart
While charting, select + Add next to the Complaint heading.
Enter in the Complaint's details and Save.
As you continue charting, the complaint will now appear under the Complaint heading for you to associate it with the chart.
After you click Complete & Close, the complaint will appear in the tagline of the description of the chart along with the Date & Name of the Practitioner who created the chart.
