The flowchart starts with the patient arriving at the clinic. If the patient is not in the system, the staff registers the patient. Then the patient waits for an available nurse. The nurse records the patient’s ailment. After the nurse records the patient’s health condition, the patient waits for an available doctor. The patient then receives an assignment to the next available doctor. If the patient needs a follow-up, the staff arranges an appointment. If the patient needs medication, the doctor offers a prescription. After all the procedures, the patient leaves.
