ASSESSMENT (Diagnosis: Primary and Differentials)


1- Primary diagnosis (Z00.129): Encounter for routine child health examination w/o abnormal finding


2- Differential diagnoses: N/A


PLAN (including education)


Vaccines administered: Teen received INFLUENZA VACCINE.


Vaccine administration forms given


Education: The parent should keep closed communication with the teen all over so that they be able to note any changes to their well-being with no trouble. They should also provide proper training and guidance to the child on the probable diseases that can affect them in the last phases of life so that she will be better prepared psychologically and able to handle it successfully. We should not forget that educate the child on safety is vital, and the security actions should be efficiently spoken to the child to prevent any damages that can negatively affect their health. Also, it is essential to maintain a healthy diet which will help with the proper growth and will prevent obesity which has been changing the children leading to diseases as HTN and Type II DM. Though this Pt. is adequately vaccinated according to schedule, is also essential to enforce the importance of vaccination in the prevention of transmissible diseases and its complications.


Anticipatory Guidance: Parent should be advised that they must keep closed attention to the adolescent mood as sometimes depression goes unnoticed and suicide is one of the most common causes of death at this age altogether with accidents and drug/ETOH use and abuse.


Follow up/Referrals: No referrals needed at this time.
