Assessment- Objective & Subjective Data

Review of clinical record 
  1. Client records contain information collected by many members of the healthcare team, such as demographics, past medical history, diagnostic test results and consultations
  2. Reviewing the client’s record before beginning an assessment prevents the nurse from repeating questions that the client has already been asked and identifies information that needs clarification.
