SPEAKING SUB – TEST

ROLE PLAYER’S CARD

NURSING / SETTING  / Home Visit / PATIENT

You are a busy 50-year-old waitress, recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. You had a wedge resection 12 days  ago and have post-operative infection in your right large toe. You are resting at home and the district nurse is visiting to change your dressing.

Task

  • Admit that you should have followed the surgeon’s advice, but did not, so now you have an infection.
  • Argue that you need a quick fix to the toe because you need to get back to work; the antibiotics obviously aren’t working.
  • Agree to use the nurse’s list of suggestions and accept that you did not cause your own infection.
  • Tell the nurse that you know the risks that diabetics experience with circulation, but would like a brochure on how to manage your illness.
