After a telephone discussion and a detailed patient’s assessment, a nurse may
decide to inform the primary care provider on the changes in patient’s condition. In
case of any significant problems, a nurse may immediately refer the patient to the
hospital. Notification is sent to the hospital to expect the patient, so that woman may
be seen immediately upon arrival.
Nursing care database system is a great tool for detecting diseases at an early
stage. Proactive nursing or doctors’ intervention may help prevent the disease or
improve the prognosis. It allows tracking of patients’ condition, medical problems,
medication, signs and symptoms of illnesses, and record nursing assessment.
