Riverbend City: Health Assessment Mission

Kimberly, the student nurse, is generally professional in her assessment of the patient named Dhia Her. However, there is a degree of awkwardness to the conversation that is difficult to ignore. However, the evaluation must take into consideration the language barriers and cultural beliefs of the patient because it appears that these are somewhat prohibitive in the assessment process. At the same time, a nurse performing this type of assessment must also consider the development of new ideas and approaches that will encourage greater cultural competence towards patients that have distinguishable language and cultural barriers that make it difficult for nurse assessments to be clear and concise at all times.
