P
atient Rentention: How to use the Patient Progress Sheet

The patient progress sheet is a checklist of basic administrative and clinical actions that need to occur for every patient to ensure that each patient receives complete care. On occasion, unimportant activities can be dropped out which can negatively effect the total quality of patient care, resulting in patients dropping out of care.  By following this patient progress sheet, the doctor can ensure that all of the necessary actions on each patient occur.

The patient progress sheet should be kept in the patient folder, either as a full sheet of paper, or as sticky pad attached on the inside front cover. Each doctor’s office can determine what is most appropriate for his or her particular situation. A staff member can be assigned this duty to make sure that each Patient Progress sheet gets completed.
