The application of nursing interventions and measures based on the analysis and assessment of patient needs, problems and difficulties observed, and his or her abilities as well as on a continuous assessment and verification of the results obtained is carried out by means of the healthcare process. The rational and logical basis for defining and solving patient's problems is within the scope of healthcare process. Professional networking as well as the networking of all hierarchical structures is a priority where the filing of nursing documentation in a centralized information system is concerned.
