Vital Signs

Objective: Record and chart changes in the following vital signs:

  • (A) Height
  • (B) Weight
  • (C) Blood pressure
  • (D) Calculate and display body mass index (BMI)
  • (E) Plot and display growth charts for children 2-20 years, including BMI

Measure: For more than 50 percent of all unique patients age 2 and over seen by the EP, height, weight, and blood pressure are recorded as structured data.
Exclusion: Any EP who either see no patients 2 years or older, or who believes that all three vital signs of height, weight, and blood pressure of their patients have no relevance to their scope of practice.
