Student Name:Student ID:Group:Date:Type of AssessmentThis summative assessment will enable your Assessor to make a judgement of competency based on the submission ofyour completed assignments against the requirements of this unit of competency.Assessor InstructionsThe Assessment Benchmark developed for each unit of competency is theevidence criteria used to judge the quality ofperformance (i.e. the assessment decision-making rules).Assessors must use these benchmarks to make a judgement onwhether competency has been achieved and to determine if the participant has performed to the standard expected tomeet the unit requirement and learning outcomes. Competency results for each unit are recorded in the Record ofAssessment Form.Reasonable AdjustmentCareers Australia will allow flexibility in relation to the way in which each unit is delivered and assessed based on thestudent’s requirement. The following are the reasonable adjustments for this unit:Trainer/Assessor must select which of the following is suitable for this unit and DELETE rows that are not applicableReasonable Adjustment for this unitCollege BasedOn-Line DeliveryThe assistance of a Learning Support Teacher for LLN issuesModifications to physical environment, e.g. Wheelchair accessChanges to course design, e.g. Instead of written assessment task – change to verbalquestioning & assessor to write the answersChanges in lecture schedules and arrangements, e.g. Relocating classes to an accessiblevenueModifications to computer equipment in the computer labProvision of information or course materials in accessible format, e.g. A textbook inbrailleSupply of specialised equipment or services, e.g. A note taker for a student who cannotwriteAssessment CodingAssessment of this program of study is based on competency-based principles.S= SatisfactoryNS= Not SatisfactoryStudents who fail to perform satisfactorily for the assessment in the prescribed date may be assessed as ‘notsatisfactory’. You are required to be assessed as ‘Satisfactory’ on completion of Assessments assigned by yourassessor for this unit of competency.Re-assessmentAny re-assessment is conducted as soon as practicable after you have been informed of the requirement to be re-assessed and have been given the opportunity to be re-trained and assimilate the training. You are re-assessed in onlythe areas assessed NS. It is at the assessor/s discretion to re-assess the entire assessment should it be demonstrated anoverall understanding of this unit has not been achieved. Students that are assessed ‘satisfactory’ after re-assessment ofareas deemed NS will achieve competency for this assignment.I acknowledge the assessment process has been explained and agree to undertake the assessment. I am aware of Careers Australia’s appealsprocess, should the need arise. I also understand that I must be assessed as ‘satisfactory’ in all parts of the assessment to gain a competentresult for this unit of competency.I declare that the work contained in this assessment is my own, except where acknowledgment of sources ismade. I understand that a person found responsible for academic misconduct will be subject to disciplinary action (refer to student handbook).Student Signature:__________________________Date:______Assessor use onlyAssessor Comment/Feedback:Assessor Name: ________________________ Assessor Signature: _____________________________Date: _________________ Result: Satisfactory/Not SatisfactoryOffice use only:Results entered by:Date:Skills Centre:ASSESSMENT: Practical – Case StudyS/NS result given.

Case Study 1Scenario 1 – Mr. Frank Hardy (Questions 1-9 refer to this scenario)Mr. Frank Hardy has been in hospital for three (3) days. He was admitted because of high blood pressure(hypertension) and a possible stroke (cerebrovascular accident). After further investigations during hisadmission, it has been identified that Mr. Hardy has had a cerebrovascular accident affecting his left side.After reviewing Mr Hardy’s chart you find that he has a significant medical and social history:Medical History:Age: 68 years oldCurrent smoker, with a fifty year history of smoking 30 cigarettes dailyWeight: 135kgHeight: 180cmHypertensionSocial History:Mr Hardy is a widow (1 year ago) and lives aloneThere are no children or current support systemsMr Hardy has no current services in his home (such as home help, meals on wheels)Mr. Hardy is currently reluctant to mobilise due to a mild weakness in his left side. Mr Hardy has beenseen by the physiotherapist and given a walking stick to aid with his mobility. He appears to be veryquiet and not willing to engage with staff. He has declined hygiene cares since admission three (3) daysago. When you review Mr Hardy’s care plan you note that the following cares need to be completed:Hygiene caresAssist with mobilityObservationsIn relation to the above scenario, please answer the following nine (9) questions regarding Mr. Hardy’scare both in and out of the hospital and your role as the Enrolled Nurse (EN) providing care for Mr.Hardy.1.Mr Hardy has ‘hypertension’ which means high blood pressure. List the parameters for a ‘normal’blood pressure range and the ranges for hypertension.The blood pressure readings is denoted by systolic (upper number) and diastolic (lower number) readings inmm Hg. For the normal readings systolic reading is less than 120 while diastolic is less than 80. Hence normalblood pressure range is less than 120/80. When the systolic reading is 140 or higher than that or situationswhen diastolic reading is 90 or more 90 then it is said to have high blood pressure stage. When systolic ismore than 180 and/or diastolic reading is higher than 120 then it can be said to have hypertensive crisis andimmediate care is needed.2.You have performed vital signs on Mr. Hardy, they are;BP135/ 90mmHg, RR 26bpm, P 95bpm, T 40oC.If the observations listed below are considered the normal for adults, identify which of theseobservations are variations from normal levels that have the potential to cause problems with Frank’shealth.T: 36.2 – 37.3oCP: 60 – 100bpmRR: 16 – 24bpmBP: 120/80mmHgThe blood pressure of Mr. Hardy is higher than the normal range and cna be considered as the initial range of19thJanuary 2017Page3
hypertensive blood pressure. Thus improper attention can cause several complications or even death. Thepulse rate is in normal range but the increased blood pressure has also increased respiratory rate. The bodytemperature of Mr. Hardy is also higer than normal range whcih can affect the blood pressure changes.However the criticalness of blood pressure and respiratory rates are extremely severe.3.The term pathophysiology explains the processes and functioning within the body which result in thesigns and symptoms of a disease/s. The ‘relationship’ between body systems is the contributingfactor/s that work together in our bodies to try and maintain homeostasis. Explain the relationshipbetween Mr Hardy’s respiratory rate and temperature.The temperature has direct impact on breathing rate. The temperature reading of Mr. Hardy is recordedas 40oC which is not in the normal range. The temperature increase has direct association with therespiratory rate as well as heart beat. When temperature of body increases then speed and rate ofcellular respiration is also increased and as a result respiratory rate is increased. To maintain the cellularprocess against increased body temperature respiratory rate ofMr. Hardy is also slightly higher than thenormal values.4.Identify your scope of practice in this situation. List your role responsibility in comparison to aRegistered Nurse (RN) role.RN tend to provide primary care to the patient so taht respirartory and hypertensive conditions can beimproved. They manages medications and education for smoking cessation so that cardiovascular risks can beavoided and complications of cerebrovascular accident can be controlled. Contrary to this enrolled nurseshave scope to develop effective care plans and nursing assessments so that care outcomes can be determinedfor the patients as well as carers. Enrolled nurse also works in supervision of RN so that different teams canwork together and observation, care and mobility needs of patient can be addressed.5.As an Enrolled Nurse, identify the reporting hierarchy that you would follow in order to ensure thatthis information is relayed appropriately.For relaying information properly enrolled nurses follow a specific hierarchy of reporting. The registerednurses assess the condition and needs of Mr. Hardy by observating patients and discussions fromclinical nurse. Thus RN provides instruction to enrolled nurses so that they can provide supportthrough devleoping effective care plans and coordiantion with mulidisciplinary and other other teammembers. In addition to this for seeking any assistance enrolled nurses also communciate and work incoordination wiht the nursing assistance. The nursing assistants further report to enrolled nurses sothat they can update the care plan and staus of patient.6.Explain and discuss the following three (3) health care professionals’ scope of practice/role in the careand management when referred to Mr. Hardy.19thJanuary 2017Page4
