Introduction This paper will discuss the Perceived Stress Scale, Mini-Mental State exam, and the Beck Depression Inventory. It will identify how the test is done, what appropriate age the test can be used, and how these test would help in the nursing process. It also relates to the vulnerable population of psychiatric patients. Assessment Tool Analysis To be able to assist patients with their physical, mental, and psychological health concerns, assessment tools may be used. This allows the medical staff to use the knowledge they obtained in school in order to help the patients in improving their life.
Our own different and individual strategies for managing stress were discussed as well as how we learned these stress managing strategies. In the social learning activity, we conducted a survey to learn how individuals in our community experience and cope with stress. We acknowledged the importance of the federal laws and procedures created to protect patient privacy. We gained insight into the Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and practiced completing a patient consent and restriction information form. This allowed our class to become informed on the process of admitting a patient in the field.
