The road to success in any health career begins with a solid understanding of medical terminology. Medical terminology truly is the language of medicine. As a medical scribe, understanding medical terms, abbreviations and acronyms is crucial to your job. This lesson will introduce you to the elements that make up most medical terms so that you can quickly build a medical vocabulary. Those elements are root words, suffixes and prefixes, which fit together like a puzzle to form the terms. Don’t let any of this overwhelm you, though. Like learning a new language, the more you use medical terminology, the more comfortable you’ll become.

Observation or inspection is the process of obtaining information by observing the patient — their level of consciousness, nutritional status, skin color, posture, gait, asymmetry, mannerisms and personal hygiene.
If there are grammatical errors or misspelled terms in medical records, patients may mistrust the quality of their care. Misspellings can also lead to a patient’s misdiagnosis. Errors in medical records can also increase a doctor’s risk of being involved in a lawsuit.
