This paper investigates the administrative and managerial pattern on the Road to Health Chart (RtHC) among clinics in the Makhado municipality. Retrospective observations of the processes of recordings the nurses performed on the RtHC (ṉ=36) were carried out to collect data. A checklist was used to aid the observations. Furthermore, face-to-face interviews were administered on participant nurses in collaboration with document review. The results of this paper revealed considerable omissions on the administration and management of the RtHC instrument. Crucial information was also incorrectly recorded while some was never recorded at all. Clinic managers should continuously monitor the nurses on the administration and management of the RtHC to ensure quality. Key Words: Child Health, Growth monitoring, Registered Nurses, Road to health Chart (RtHC)
