Medical - Medical (general) / Hosital chart
Swedish term or phrase: löpande journal
I am looking for a way to translate the term "löpande journal" used for a hospital chart showing patient progress; although the term "progress chart" may sound appropriate, "löpande" actually refers to the chart, so it is something like "day-to-day hospital chart".

I would be grateful for suggestions.

Progress notes or progress note section of the chart.


Explanation:
That is what it is called in the states, whether inpatient or outpatient. Otherwise it could be called a running progress log if you want it to retain more of its original feel and tone. D. Jacobson, MD

Another option would be : current progress
which would also include the meaning of löpande.

  -> Interesting. Every clinic or hospital I've worked at has always included the word progress.
