Thank you for your efforts.
Nurses and doctors will take a patient's medical history, meaning that they ask the patient about past illnesses or operations.
Generally it would be worded that the history is taken BY the nurse FROM the patient since the questions are asked by the nurse and the information is from the patient.
Your understanding is correct.
