Hi can you help me to solve case study please?

Genevieve Graduated as an RPN 6 months ago and has started working on a busy complex care floor. She has been working with Amil, a PSW, for the last 5 months and he has been a Personal Support Worker for 10 years. They work well together. One day Genevieve is overwhelmed with administering medication, and asks Amil if he would mind checking on Lucy, a young patient who is ringing the call bell. Genevieve tells him that Lucy probably needs to be suctioned and to suction if he believes Lucy needs suctioning. Genevieve reflects and thinks it has been a while since she was last in Lucy's room.

Can Amil give Lucy a quick suction if she needs it? He has seen it performed before on many occasions on the unit, but has never actually done the task himself.
