Abstract: Occupational health nurses routinely collect clinical information and enter it in the worker's clinical chart record. While a single chart provides information for making clinical decisions for an individual, the information from many charts is needed for summarizing trends in worker illness and injury across a worker population. With summary information on a group of workers, the occupational health nurse can plan for illness and injury prevention programs.
