sample charting

  1. We were reading a article last night at work and it gave documentation examples using a SAMPLE format. I had not seen this before and am wondering what the letters stand for, can anyone help?

    A is for allergy, and M is for meds, we did figure that much out!
    Thanks

    no clue? S for symptoms? P for past medical history or pain?
