a record of the signs and symptoms of the
disease.

Example

Caring for a sick person in the hospital over a long period


is hard work and requires stamina, so you must look after
your own health. Eating a well-balanced diet is crucial.
You also need plenty of rest and sleep. Keep in touch
with friends and if you cannot get out to see them, invite
them over to see you.
Some conditions must be considered in caring for
patients. One of them is patients consciousness. If the
patient is alert, administer a sedative and an analgesic to
decrease their anxiety.

the patient.

bed making with a patient still on the bed.
Make it by your own words.
