Editor's Note: This issue of CQ contains contributions from three of our readers. Two of the models presented can serve as examples for the development or revision of similar tools and documents for your own health service. The third is a clinical case review, pertinent to nursing assessment in the college health setting. I acknowlege with gratitude these very useful and practical contributions from our readers.
Lorraine Matteis, R.N.,C., B.S. acknowledges that she received a lot of help from the SHS (Student Health Service listserv) network in her development of a clear and concise Student Satisfaction Survey for Lyndon State College. This survey is unique in that it is generic enough to be used for health services, counseling services, and career services. As we move toward quality assurance or accreditation, it is essential that student satisfaction surveys be developed and utilized to assess and improve our services. Here is one model to emulate. Lorraine can be contacted by email at MATTEISL@king.lsc.vsc.edu
Mary Madsen,R.N. has likewise put a lot of work into the development of the Allergy Administration Policy and Procedures for the University of Rochester/River Campus. In addition to the policy and procedures featured in this issue of CQ, Mary has developed an Allergy Agreement and No-Show Policy Agreement to be signed by the student, an Allergy Immunotherapy Checksheet to be used by professional staff, and an Allergy Injection Services information sheet to be given to students. For more information, you may contact Mary by FAX: 716-461-9636 or email: MAMN@uhura.cc.rochester.edu
Florence N. Cooper, B.S.N., R.N., C. of Millsaps College in Jackson, MS challenges us with a clinical case study to help us broaden and/or refresh our nursing assessment skills. You will also find a link to the Merck Manual on the World Wide Web!
Perhaps you have a program, tool, or document which might serve as a useful model to other college health services, particularly nurse-directed health services. I would be happy to consider it for publication in a future issue of Connections Quarterly.
