vSim Health Assessment Case 10: Rashid Ahmed
Guided Reflection Questions
How did you feel throughout the simulation experience?
What do you think went well?
- I think the simulation went well. It was hard for me at first, but I realized that I missed some assessment steps that were important. It was clear that the patient was dehydrated so I took steps to try to get the patient more hydrated. I performed safety measures, assessments and interventions. I asked questions regarding his pain, feelings, and medical history. I checked his allergies and educated him with patient teachings on his condition.
