communicate with the patient to see why he feels he is doing no better but it is also important for that nurse to retrieve the records from the primary care provider to be able to measure the patient’s progression through his/her illness. Nurses would gather the data and use their knowledge to help make wise decisions about the care that this patient needs. Having the proper communication, the emergency department nurse would be able to compare the patient’s vital signs, lung sounds, quality of symptoms, and general condition. The emergency department nurse would then be able to coordinate this patient’s care and follow up. After treatment the patient would likely be referred his primary care physician to follow up with the progression of his illness. The primary care practitioner would then be able to evaluate the patient and his outcomes based on the information provided from the emergency department on the patient’s treatment and progress, and provide continued care.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
