13 Patient Questionnaire

14 Creating Charts Even if the patient doesnt recollect ever having been to the HRC, check to see if they have a chart Refer to the example adult/peds patient chart to construct the chart Correct any inproperly organized charts you find Make sure all forms are properly put into the chart before handing it to a pre-clinical volunteer

15 Doctors We cannot examine patients until a doctor arrives Doctors generally arrive a little later If a doctors doesnt show up by 9:15 Let the Lead Coordinator know so they can try contacting the doctor directly Try paging the doctor through the SLU switchboard (577-8000) Call Dr. Morley: use this as the LAST resort

16 During the Clinic Ensure flow: Make sure patients are being seen in a timely fashion Communicate with patients so they understand what to expect If patients dont want to wait or cannot be seen that day, give them the list of alternative clinics If the clinic is full for the day, put out the sign that clinic is full, but leave the doors open
