As per "Patient Presentation"?

e.g. FH = Family History
VS = Vital Signs
SH = ?
ROS = ?

Thanks!

SH = Social history (including drug use, alcohol use, sexual promiscuity, etc)

ROS = Review of systems (could also be thought of as review of symptoms) - just a quick overview of the patient's appearance and systems, in a head-to-toe format. An example would be: Neuro - Disoriented to place and time; Eyes - PERRL; CV - hypotension, tachycardia, Respiratory - Rhonchi and wheezing upon expiration; GI - + bowel sounds; GU - Within normal limits; 3+ pedal pulses

It always gets me that in retail pharmacy, "POS" stands for "Point of Sale," and it's never good if your name shows up on a POS Report.

Wrong. What you have listed for ROS is a PE. Normally ROS is what the pt is complaining of +N/V/D, denies fever/chills/HA.
