Nursing student here - just wondering about head-to-toe assessments and what your practice is around them. I have just been introduced to the term focused assessment as well. I guess what I'm wondering is when do you generally perform a full head-to-toe in your practice? And when do you do a focused assessment? I'm always trying to think about how to best order my assessments so as to be efficient and thorough...so another question I have for you is: Would your focused assessment generally be performed at the beginning of your head-to-toe or do you tend to fit the focused assessment into your standard head-to-toe sequence. It sounds like I'm over-thinking it but I've really been wondering about this. Any insight or resources would be great!
