Systematik der Teilbibliothek Sozial- und Gesundheitswesen

"Ein kleiner Teil der Bestände der Fachbibliothek Sozial- und Gesundheitswesen ist nach der unten stehenden früheren Systematik der Teilbibliothek Fachbereich IV, Sozial- und Gesundheitswesen aufgestellt.

Diese frühere Systematik der Fachbibliothek Sozial- und Gesundheitswesen ist für unsere Klassifizierungsarbeit heute nicht mehr relevant.

This organism term is 'treed' in the polyhierarchy as both a soilborne bacillus organism and as a biological agent.

Describing patients’ preoperative physical status is used for recordkeeping, for communicating between colleagues, and to create a uniform system for statistical analysis. The grading system is not intended for use as a measure to predict operative risk."
