Kiley Hamell6.16.20VSIM #2Sherman “Red” Yoder, Part 1Guided Reflection QuestionsOpening QuestionsHow did the simulated experience of Red Yoder’s case make you feel?The home assessment was a new simulation for me. In this scenario the regular head to toe assessment wasn’t necessary, but it never hurts to get a full picture of the patient. This simulation provided extensive practice with asking questions and gaining a health picture for this patient. I thought that it was difficult to ask the questions without the form in from of me to go by.What nursing actions did you feel were appropriate within this scenario?This simulation provided extensive practice with asking questions and gaining a health picture for this patient. The nurse needed to assess the patient, identify concerns and plan care for the patient. Discussing Red’s understanding of his diagnosis of diabetes and the necessity to stick to the correct insulin routine, diet and exercise and discussing his sleep and alcohol use patterns were all appropriate. Assessing his foot ulcer and evaluating Red’s ability to care for the wound and the availability of family support was also important.
