Document Content and Description Below

Health History Tips & Tricks: - ✔✔ Student: Hello! - ✔✔Diana Shadow: Hi. I'm Preceptor Diana. I will explain the details of this assignment and your objectives, just as a preceptor would in... real life. Pay close attention to this information as it will help guide your exam. At the end of this prebrief, you will answer a short question about the upcoming assignment. During the simulation, you may return to these instructions at any time by scrolling to the top of your transcript. Student: What is the situation? - ✔✔Diana Shadow: Your patient is Tina Jones:, a 28-year-old African American woman who has just been admitted to Shadow General Hospital for a painful foot wound. Your role in this simulation is that of a healthcare provider who will take Ms. Jones' health history, a key component of her admission process. Student: What are my objectives in this assessment? - ✔✔Diana Shadow: A health history requires you to ask questions related to Ms. Jones' past and present health, from her current foot wound to her pre-existing conditions. You will also want to review Ms. Jones' systems, psychosocial history, and family medical history. These assessments together will give you a comprehensive picture of Ms. Jones' overall health. If you discover any disease states, ask about symptoms and the patient's experiences of them. Your questioning should cover a broad array of the symptoms' characteristics. Throughout the conversation, you should educate and empathize with Ms. Jones when appropriate to increase her health literacy and sense of well-being. Regardless of whether you have assessed Ms. Jones previously, ask all questions that are necessary for obtaining a complete health history. While you should communicate with patients using accessible, everyday language, it is standard practice to use professional medical terminology everywhere else, such as in documenting physical findings and nursing notes. You may complete the exam activities in any order and move between them as needed. After obtaining Ms. Jones' health history, you will complete an information processing activity. You will identify and prioritize diagnoses, then create a plan to address the identified diagnoses. Student: What else will this exam involve? - ✔✔Diana Shadow: You will complete nursing tasks to protect the patients safety, privacy, and health. You can document your findings, including vital signs, in the Electronic Health Record. This record provides necessary information for healthcare professionals who will continue patient care. Besides Subjective Data Collection, and Education and Empathy, there are activities within the simulation that provide valuable practice for their real-world counterparts, but they are not automatically graded by the simulation. Student: How will I be evaluated? - ✔✔Diana Shadow: In this assignment, you will be evaluated on your Subjective Data Collection, as well as your Education and Empathy. Your success in Education and Empathy is based on whether you promptly respond after identifying a moment worthy of therapeutic communication. The evaluation of your interview is dependent on how you word your questions therapeutically and precisely and explore all relevant topics with comprehensive breadth and depth. You will also be evaluated on your ability to collect data and form nursing diagnoses in the information processing activity. This assignment takes on average between 90 and 110 minutes. This exam may take longer than in real life, because in this safe simulation, students of all experience levels can take time to hone and review their skills. You can pause and resume the assignment at any time; your work is always saved automatically. Student: How does this assignment prepare me for the real world? - ✔✔Diana Shadow: In this assessment, you will become familiarized with the structure and content of a health history exam so that with real-life patients, you can: º ask effective and comprehensive questions º obtain a thorough health history º evaluate the patient's risk of disease, infection, injury, and complications º educate and empathize º reflect on your experience and identify areas to improve º identify and prioritize nursing diagnoses º and develop a plan to address nursing diagnoses. Diana Shadow: In 1 or 2 sentences, answer this question to help prepare for the upcoming exam: Why is it important to obtain a patient's complete health history? - ✔✔Student: So that you understand if there are any problems related to their chief complaint. Also, to help treat their current condition. Diana Shadow: Time to begin. - ✔✔ Patient Exam - Vital Signs: - ✔✔Height: 170 cm, Weight: 90 kg, BMI: 31, Random blood glucose: 238, Temperature: 102.4° F, Blood pressure: 138/90 mmHg, Heart rate: 90, Respiratory rate: 18, O2 sat: 98% Patient Exam - Interview: - ✔✔ Student: Hello, my name is Catlain, I am your nurse today. - ✔✔Tina Jones: Hey. Student: Can you confirm your name? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Tina Jones:. Student: Why did you come in today? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I got this scrape on my foot a while ago, and it got really infected. It's killing me. Student: What additional symptoms have you experienced? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I mean, it's all red and swollen, and there's pus, it feels hot, it hurts like hell... It's got all that going on. Student: Can you rate your current pain level on a scale of 0 to 10? - ✔✔Tina Jones: ...Like a 7. It hurts a lot, but whatever pain med the ER gave me is helping a little bit. Student: Please describe the pain. - ✔✔Tina Jones: It's throbbing and like, sharp if I try to put weight on it. Student: How did you hurt your foot? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I was changing a light bulb, and I had to use our little stepstool to reach it. My foot slid off the bottom step and it got all scraped up. I didn't realize how sharp the edge was! Student: Has your foot been draining any liquids? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Yeah, there's definitely pus. Student: What color was the pus? - ✔✔Tina Jones: It's... white or maybe off-white. Student: How have you treated the wound? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I've been taking Advil for my foot for a few days. Student: What did you do to treat your foot after your accident? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I made sure to clean it and keep it bandaged. And I put Neosporin on it. Student: How effective was the Neosporin? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Well, I'm here, so I guess it didn't do its job. Student: Can you walk with your foot being injured? - ✔✔Tina Jones: No, I can't. I can't put any weight on it without like, shooting pain.

Student: Do you currently take medicine for your diabetes? - ✔✔Tina Jones: No, I don't take anything for my diabetes anymore. Student: What made you stop taking medication for your diabetes? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I guess I just got sick of feeling sick and gassy all the time, and it was overwhelming, remembering to take pills and check my sugar. I feel a lot better now that I'm just eating healthier than I did when I was taking the pills. Student: Do you monitor your blood glucose? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I have a monitor at home, but to be honest I don't really use it that often. Student: How frequently do you urinate? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I don't know. Every hour or two when I'm awake? Student: What is your current diet? - ✔✔Tina Jones: It's pretty good, I think. I'm not a huge health nut or anything. Student: Have you had any change in appetite? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Yeah, lately I've definitely been much hungrier than usual. Student: Has your weight changed? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Yeah, I've lost some weight recently. Student: Do you know why you lost weight? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I don't know what caused it, I just lost weight. Student: How often do you have asthma exacerbations? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I haven't had a full attack in years. But my breathing definitely acts up. . .not always. Max twice a week. Student: What asthma symptoms have you experienced? - ✔✔Tina Jones: My chest and throat get tight, and I start to wheeze. It feels like I can't take in air, like I can't get enough air into my lungs. Student: How many puffs do you take when using your asthma inhaler? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I usually use two puffs from my inhaler, but sometimes I need three. [Nurse confirmed with Pharmacy: albuterol 90mcg/spray MDI] Student: What are some things that trigger your asthma? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Being around cats is the worst, but dust and running up stairs can make my breathing bad, too.

Student: How effective was your pain medication at home? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Whatever pain medication the ER gave me is helping. Before I came in, I was just taking Advil.

Student: How did you cope with your fathers death? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Well, right after he died, after the funeral and everything, I just tried to get through that. Mom was having such a hard time, crying a lot, everything made her sad, she was kind of depressed. So, I guess at first I just focused on getting things done--groceries, laundry, insurance papers and stuff. Knowing that Mom needed me kind of helped me get through day by day. There was about a month where it was hard for us to get to church. Even getting up and ready for church was too overwhelming. But our church family helped us out and gave us rides to church and brought meals and all that, so they really helped build us back up. Things were only hard like that for a few months.

Honestly, I didn't realize that I'd be admitted to the hospital for my foot. I don't want to miss work or school but now it looks like I'll have to. And I want my foot to stop hurting. I know I need sleep, too. Student: We are going to take care of everything as quickly as possible. - ✔✔Tina Jones: Thanks.

My faith is a big part of my life--when things get hard like they've been this past year, I know I can trust that God's looking out for me. I've been going to the same church since I was a kid, too, so the people at church are practically part of my family. Student: Have you experienced abuse? - ✔✔Tina Jones: I've never had been in any kind of situation like that... It's scary to think about. Student: Have you used illicit drugs? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Well, I used to smoke pot. . . but I don't do that anymore. Student: What type of drugs did you use? - ✔✔Tina Jones: Um...I've smoked pot before. In high school, and after high school... I definitely don't anymore, though.

Student: Tell me about your father. - ✔✔Tina Jones: Dad was a little stricter than Mom growing up. . . he would sometimes get kind of mad at us when we did something wrong. But he never hit us or anything. He would just get really calm and quiet and tell us to go to our rooms without supper, or that we were grounded when we were older. Or like, he'd make us rake the yard or wash his car or something. It's pretty sad to [Show More]
