Entering Vital Signs

  1. Login to ZenCharts and click into the desired client's chart
  2. Go to the main navigation menu drop down and select Medical
  3. In the medical section, click on the sub-menu location of Vitals Chart

4. Add vital signs by clicking on Add Record and input your values in the appropriate fields. If you are inputting a full set of vitals in addition to blood pressure and heart rate, simply check the additional check boxes for the additional fields to display. You also have the ability to input pain scores within this modal as well, and that's it, you're done!.

Note: Vital Signs can be documented from within a form or an assessment if the vital signs module has been placed in the form template. They can also be documented from the e-mar/e-mor (if it is checked off as a requirement when the order was entered) prior to signing off on a medication. Vitals entered in the vital signs module from within an assessment or the e-mar/e-mor will auto-populate into this Vitals Chart section.  If you are given the correct rights you will be able to delete vitals from the form and this will not affect the vital records inside of the vitals chart.
