Abstract

Uniformity in a teaching hospital's pediatric outpatient clinic is often inconsistent because of the varying numbers of housestaff involved in patient evaluation. We have developed a flow sheet that defines the appropriate standards of care to be delivered at the Doctors Hospital Pediatric Outpatient Clinic. This flow sheet encompasses a method of rapid assessment of growth, development, physical examination, immunization status, screening laboratory testing, and parental education. We have defined these parameters as the minimal evaluation to be completed at each preschool well-child visit.
