Vital Observations

Vital signs are an important component of monitoring the adult or child patient’s progress during hospitalisation, as they allow for the prompt detection of delayed recovery or adverse events. Vital signs are measured to obtain basic indicators of a patient’s health status.

Support staff can learn the required skills to measure vital observations. This may in cases where a high intensity support worker is providing complex supports.

Support workers must have access to a health practitioner/Registered Nurse to report the data to. Support workers are not trained or expected to interpret data or apply interventions or strategies based on their interpretation of vital signs data.

Our programs are useful for audit, registration, and re-registration purposes. Certificate of completion provided by the Director of Clinical Education – Registered Nurse.
