Written for migrant nurses, this manual is intended to simplify and speed up the process of entering pertinent medical information onto the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) data base. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the indepth technical information in the National MSRTS Health Users Manual and includes page references to that document. The first section explains in detail the Health Data Entry Form and gives specific directions for completing each section: identifying data, patient history, family history, immunizations, screenings and laboratory tests, and health problems. Sample problem situations and solutions are included. Subsequent chapters provide basic information about the medical record (the output document prepared from the Health Data Entry Form), filing system requirements for migrant student health records, how to handle records when students move, how to make corrections and deletions to the records, and how to handle sensitive data (child abuse, neglect, etc.). The reference and resource section provides: a directory of migrant nurses by parish, codes and abbreviations used in the health records, a glossary of eight terms and acronyms used in MSRTS health records, and ordering information for two medical references.
