1. Mr White

Friday, 25th November 2016, 07:00 PM

Mr Thomas White is a 75-year-old resident at Lotus Compassionate Care, staying in Room 3-1C. He has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has been having arthritis flares. He requires support from others in meeting his personal care needs.

When you arrived this morning, you introduced yourself and explained why you were there.

"Good morning, Mr White. How are you this morning?" you greeted Mr White.

"Look. I am so clumsy; I spilt water on my pants," he said as he pointed to his trousers. As he was saying this, you just listened and reassured him.

While you were assisting him with his shower, he kept telling you in a loud voice, "Stop fussing over me!"

Then he threw the washer on the shower floor.

"Are you okay Mr White?" you asked him.

"My hip is sore. This arthritis!" he responded irritably. You reassured him.

Mr White had always been pleasant towards you. He always spoke in a calm manner and was always polite. However, he is not quite himself today, and he took longer than usual to finish his shower this morning.


1. You have finished assisting Mr White with his morning routine. As you got out

of his room, Isabelle, a colleague of yours, greeted you and said:

"I can't help but overhear you and Mr My-Hip-is-Sore. Complaining again, huh? I bet he's just making that up to get more attention."

What would be the appropriate response to Isabelle?

Guidance: Select the two (2) best answers.

a. "I should report you to our supervisor."

b. Disagree with Isabelle and defend Mr White's condition. Warn Isabelle that if she does not stop with her mean comments about Mr White, you will report her for verbal abuse.

c. Agree with Isabelle to avoid further discussion. If she comments rudely about Mr White again, report her to your supervisor.

d. Explain to Isabelle that Mr White has said he has arthritis pain, and it is our responsibility to report this to the supervisor.

e. "Mr White has a right to express his needs, and we have a legal responsibility to assist him to meet these needs."
