This Simulated Patient Encounter maps to Scenario PSY 12 – Gwen Harrison – Older Adult Abuse on the Elsevier Evolve Platform
Gwen Harrison is an 84-year-old Caucasian female with a history of Parkinson disease. She was admitted to the inpatient medical-surgical unit as a direct admission with unresolved symptoms of a UTI diagnosed 1 week ago at a walk-in clinic. Her granddaughter is at her side. During this scenario, learners must conduct an admission assessment for a dependent adult.
