SQL Exercise: Patients with their doctors and medications
SQL hospital Database: Exercise-20 with Solution
20. From the following tables, write a SQL query to identify patients who have made an advanced appointment. Return Patient name as "Patient", Physician name as "Physician" and Medication name as "Medication".
Sample table: patient
Sample table: prescribes
Sample table: physician
Sample table: medication
SELECT t.name AS "Patient", p.name AS "Physician", m.name AS "Medication" FROM patient t JOIN prescribes s ON s.patient=t.ssn JOIN physician p ON s.physician=p.employeeid JOIN medication m ON s.medication=m.code WHERE s.appointment IS NOT NULL;
Patient | Physician | Medication ------------+-------------+-------------- John Smith | John Dorian | Procrastin-X Dennis Doe | Molly Clock | Thesisin (2 rows)
The said query in SQL that returns information about medications prescribed to patients during their appointments, including the patient's name, the physician's name, and the medication name.
The query performs a join between the 'patient', 'prescribes', 'physician', and 'medication' tables, based on their relational columns.
The 'prescribes' and 'patient' tables are joins based on the patient and ssn columns, the 'prescribes' and 'physician tables are joins based on the physician and employeeid columns, and the 'medication ' and the 'prescribes' and 'medication' tables are joins based on the medication and code columns.
The included WHERE clause filters the results by medications that were prescribed during appointments. This is determined by checking whether the appointment identifier in the 'prescribes' table is not NULL.

SQL: Tips of the Day
Grouped LIMIT in PostgreSQL: Show the first N rows for each group?
db=# SELECT * FROM xxx; id | section_id | name ----+------------+------ 1 | 1 | A 2 | 1 | B 3 | 1 | C 4 | 1 | D 5 | 2 | E 6 | 2 | F 7 | 3 | G 8 | 2 | H (8 rows)
I need the first 2 rows (ordered by name) for each section_id, i.e. a result similar to:
id | section_id | name ----+------------+------ 1 | 1 | A 2 | 1 | B 5 | 2 | E 6 | 2 | F 7 | 3 | G (5 rows)
PostgreSQL v9.3 you can do a lateral join
select distinct t_outer.section_id, t_top.id, t_top.name from t t_outer join lateral ( select * from t t_inner where t_inner.section_id = t_outer.section_id order by t_inner.name limit 2 ) t_top on true order by t_outer.section_id;
