Why is it important to remember to document if the patient has had similar symptoms in the past?

Because it is less likely that their current symptoms are life threatening if they have survived similar symptoms in the past


Name one detail that is important to document if the patient has been evaluated in the past for a similar complaint.

What symptoms prompted the prior evaluation? How long ago did the prior evaluation occur? Who did they see? (Name and specialty) What treatment did they receive? Did it help what diagnosis was given? Any prior test results?
