Assessment Tool Analysis Paper University of Phoenix NUR/440 – Health Assessment and Promotion for Vulnerable Population April 7, 2014 Assessment Tool Analysis Paper As nurses, our number one goal is to provide the best possible patient care to insure the best possible outcomes for our patients’. In order to make this accomplishment possible we turn to the application of evidence based practice. As we begin the first steps of the nursing process we often employ the use of evidence based assessment tools in accomplishing a baseline and an ongoing or reassessment of our patients. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the definition and purpose of two assessment tools: SPICES (sleep disorders, problems with eating, incontinence, confusion, evidence of falls, and skin breakdowns), Katz activities of daily living (ADL) scale.
