This is the letter one of my students wrote in the exam. She wrote it from memory so it will give you an idea.
I am writing with regard to Mrs Green,who has altered mental status,as she requires your vsluable assessement and management.
Since 19 july 2019,homevisits were paid to change the dressings of susan who was diagnosed withthe left venous ulcer.During the visits a swab was taken from the purulent which was fortunately negative for MRSA.Besides,she shows healthy signs of wound healing.
However she exhibited mood changes on several occasions.while she was talkative on one day,she was quite on the other day.Also she has memory loss as evidenced by inability to locate things as well as remember appointments.Her daughter claimed her to have depression.
In view of the above it would be greatly appreciated if you could assess,diagnose and treat her accordingly.Please note,consent for the appointment has been obtained from her.I am sure that she would benefit immensely from you.
Should you require any further information regarding Susan,please do not hesitate to contact me.
