An Explanation of the Patient Assessment Wall and your Current Grade

An Explanation of the Assessment Wall 

(Important Date Friday January 25th)

You need to demonstrate competence in each assessment in sequence order from yellow through to pink. There is one exception. You can take the Detailed Physical Examination Assessment (Red) at any time through the written test. If you get 100% on the written test you still cannot proceed to the Ongoing Assessment (Pink) before proving competence in all previous levels (Yellow, Turquoise, Purple, and Blue). If you look at those that are at the red level you will see they have a post-it note indicating they need to prove competence in one of the lower levels before moving on.

Key

Each color on our back wall represents one of the six assessments you need to know.

Yellow (Y)                – Scene Size-Up                                   (10 points)

Turquoise (T)           – Initial Assessment                             (10 points)

Purple (P)                – Focused History                                 (10 points)

Blue (B)                   – Focused Physical Examination             (10 points)

Red (R)                    – Detailed Physical Examination            (25 points)                                                                                               (Written Test 144 Points)

Pink (P)                    – Ongoing Assessment                         (10 points)

Total   (75 points for wall completion) + (144 points for written test completion ) = 219

Due Date:

To pass this grading period everybody should be at the pink level by Friday January 25th. Those that do will receive their full 144 point.

Point Recovery:

Next week I will open my class at lunch three times for anybody that needs to retake or make up the Detailed Physical Examination Test. 100% is required to pass. There are 48 questions. Each question is worth 3 point for a total of 144 points. If you scored 138 points on the last test, you only missed 2 questions. You need to score 144 to pass the test and to make it through the red level. Please check the results of your first test on Synergy.

** Competence of all six assessments is required to deliver appropriate patient care and to pass the first grading period.

There are eight people who have demonstrated competence in Detailed Physical Examination by scoring 100% Gabbi, Derrick, Jessie, Sophia, Caroline, Emily and Amy.

Magnet Word Tool Assignment

This assignment is due on Friday. If you have questions about how to use the magnet word tool see the list below or visit me in the classroom. This assignment is due on Friday. 

I will be collecting the following on Friday.

  1. The article with the magnet words highlight or underlined – Hard copy.
  2. The list of magnet words. These are the words you highlight or underlined – Hard copy.
  3. Your rewrite of the article with your magnet words highlight within your rewrite. – Hard copy.

 

Steps for Using the Magnet Word Tool

 

  1. Find viable source. For this assignment, this step has already done for you (See CDC article below).
  2. Print Source (Hard Copy).
  3. Read the article once without doing anything but trying to understand it.
  4. Read the article again this time highlighting the magnet words.
  5. Create a list of all of the magnet words. A list of the highlight words in the order you they appear.
  6. Rewrite/paraphrase the article using all the magnet words. This is easier if you use the words in the order they appear on your list – though not always necessary to use them in order.
  7. Turn in the three items listed above.

 

*** Here is the article.

 

CDC IS OUR NATION’S PREMIER PUBLIC HEALTH AGENCY.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the nation’s leading public health agency, dedicated to saving lives and protecting the health of Americans. CDC keeps America secure by controlling disease outbreaks; making sure food and water are safe; helping people avoid leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes; and working globally to reduce threats to the nation’s health. When a national health security threat appears, CDC may not know right away why or how many people are affected, but the agency has world-class expertise to find out what is making people sick and what to do about it.

CDC is ready 24/7 to respond to any natural or manmade event. By connecting state and local health departments across the nation, CDC can discover patterns of disease and respond when needed. CDC monitors health, informs decision-makers, and provides people with information so they can take responsibility for their own health. CDC also trains and guides state and local public health laboratory partners to ensure that labs can safely detect and respond to dangerous health threats.

CDC works to strengthen local and state public health departments and promote proven health programs. Headquartered in Atlanta, CDC has a staff of more than 14,000 employees in nearly 170 occupations who work in all 50 states and more than 50 countries.
