What does "s/t" mean?

  1. I'm trying to do my careplan for class. They gave us a scenario and template but I don't know what s/t stands for.

    Frequently used as an abbreviation for secondary to.

    You might also see it written as 2 or 2/2.

    We were told to use s/t instead of r/t if the defining characteristic you cite in your NDX statement is an MDX rather than a sign or symptom.

    when we use S/T it always means skin tear. never seen it used as meaning 'secondary to'.

    Could be. The same NI told us not use the word "poor" to describe skin turgor (she wants us to say loose or tented instead), but I see it described that way in just about all our books and materials...
