question
In your inpatient unit, you are caring for a patient who is still weak from surgery. Upon reviewing physician orders, you see the patient is to get up and walk two laps in the hall. Tell me how you would proceed.
Anonymous Answer

I would ensure that the patient is feeling strong enough to walk the laps by talking to them about it. Assess their ability prior to starting. I would then help them sit up and dangle their feet at the side of the bed to make sure and avoid any orthostatic hypotension. I would make sure that their non-slip socks are on and make sure that they aren't feeling dizzy. Once they are ready I would help them up and use any assistive devices as needed and walk with them.

Chad's Answer

You make it clear that assessing the patient’s ability to participate in physical activity is the top priority. Good job! Be sure to also discuss the steps you would take if the patient was too weak to proceed. If possible, include a specific example of a time you prevented a patient fall by assessing a patient's ability to participate in physical activity and use the STAR method to frame your response.

question
It is important that Salus University exercises great discernment when choosing applicants. What is your plan if you are not accepted into an optometry program this year?
Anonymous Answer

Since I have been invited to interview, I know that you have seen something in my application. I hope to convince you that I can succeed at Salus and hope to be invited into the program. That being said, if I am not accepted I would work as a vision therapist in a neuro-optometric clinic and become certified as a vision therapist. I would also plan to re-apply to optometry school next year as this is my passion.

Chad's Answer

Your determination and drive are evident in this answer! You have a strong plan in place in the event that you are not accepted to Salus University, which will enable you to continue building your skills and knowledge in the field of optometry, and strengthen your chance of being accepted if you have to reapply in the future. Excellent work!
