Physical Assessment

Apart from the ShadowHealth© Comprehensive Assessment, you will complete a physical assessment of the virtual patient “Tina”. Note: You need to practice these exercises, multiple times, to become familiar with the process and become proficient in your assessment skills, before you actually record yourself.

Using a camera on a smart phone, tablet or the free version of www.zoom.us or www.screencast-o-matic.com record yourself showing your state issues ID or passport for student verification and performing a complete physical assessment on “Tina” in ShadowHealth®, then upload that video recording file to the Dropbox.

Please note: To complete the entire Comprehensive Assessment Assignment may take you 2-3 hours, but you will only record the physical assessment of the seven body systems listed below, so you will not select of all of the element listed on the comprehensive assessment menu. You may need to practice a few times before recording yourself and do not start the recording until you are actually on the screen where you can start the body system checks.

Think of it like this: When we go into our patient’s room after shift change, we complete a head-to-toe physical assessment of our patient, which usually consists of us talking to them while assessing and doing our checks: listening to the lung sounds, heart sounds, checking capillary refills, bowel sounds, PERRLA & neurological checks, distended jugular…etc. Is the patient alert and oriented x3? Do they have pain or are they distressed? Any complaints?

The video recording usually is approximately approximately 20 minutes in length, and should include a physical assessment for the following systems:







-Skin, Hair, and Nails
