Access a Sibling's Chart

  1. Click the Chart button.

  5. Double-click on the sibling's name. The patient chart for that sibling opens.  

Note: If using Multi-patient mode, a new window or tab opens with the selected sibling. If not, the selected patient's chart will replace the original patient's chart.
