Hi there,

May I ask if taking vital signs (clinical observations) is covered on more detail in the LPN and RN program due to the fact that Medical Support Grades cannot do certain measurements such as

Introduction into clinical observation skills,Basic clinical observations,Patient consent,Hand hygiene (infection prevention and control),Breathing/respiratory rate,Pulse rate (heart rate),Body temperature,Blood pressure,Oxygen saturation levels (and oxygen therapy),Peak flow testing,Blood glucose testing,Urine testing,Body mass index,Complete a basic pain assessment,Consciousness assessment (AVPU),Assessing patients’ skin,Supporting medication administration,Sepsis awareness, andAdditional online learning resources.

Thank you for your assistance
