I have a DB in Access; There is a tbl_patient table it includes patient info such as last name, first name, sex, age.
Is it considered bad DB design if I linked it to another table called tbl_patient_info which had equipment_id, Medication_id, etc. Then this table links to appropriate tables. IE tbl_equipment has a list of all medications. Because a patient can have many medications, to create a M:M
I would like to know if this would be considered poor db design? Thank you
