Simulated Client

Today we had simulated clients come into the department (they are retired nurses) so that we could practice doing ADL/IADL assessments on them. We went in pairs to perform the assessment.
I was so nervous and did not really feel prepared before we went in there but once we got going I really thought it was a great experience. I was in charge of monitoring blood pressure and performing the ADL assessment. Our 'client' was so nice- she had COPD,  Congestive Heart Failure, Schizophrenia, Diabetes and a Bronchial Infection! whew did you catch all that??
