Case Study

This unfolding case from the National League for Nursing's Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors series centers on Millie Larsen, who is in the hospital with a diagnosis of urinary tract infection and dehydration. The unfolding case provides three different simulation scenarios, depicting varied situations Millie encounters during her brief hospital stay. The objectives focus on assessment and appropriate use of assessment tools such as the SPICES and Hendrich Fall Risk, and Confusion Assessment Method (CAM); conflict between Millie and her daughter on living arrangements; functional assessment; discharge teaching; and making appropriate referrals. The unfolding case has 11 downloadable files, including audio files, scripts, instructor toolkits, templates, and chart materials.
