Scene 1: Temporary Shelter, General Needs Area

Expository Text: In the general needs shelter, Pilar Mendez, a resident of Ruby Lake, begins to experience dizziness and a severe headache. She seeks out a public health nurse for assistance.
Conversation 1: Ruby Lake resident Pilar Mendez seeks help from Grace Fowler.
PILAR:
Excuse me, but I need some help, please.
GRACE:
Of course. What seems to be the problem?
PILAR:
I don’t know… I feel no good. Like I might pass out or something.
GRACE:
Well, we don’t want that! Go ahead and sit down here.
PILAR:
Gracias
GRACE:
Your skin feels a little damp. Do you feel sweaty or warm?
PILAR:
Not warm, not. Chilly, but I’m all sweaty. It’s not right.
GRACE:
Okay… Mrs…
PILAR:
Mendez. My name is Pilar Mendez.
GRACE:
Okay, Mrs. Mendez. I’d like to check your blood pressure. Sue… Go find Carole for me and ask her to come give me a hand here. Alright, Mrs. Mendez, let’s see what we’ve got going on here. Okay… 142-over-94. That’s considered high blood pressure. Are you taking medication for high blood pressure?
PILAR:
Si, but I thought it was getting better.
GRACE:
Well, a day like today can certainly have an effect on your blood pressure, but I think we should let you rest here and we’ll check it again in a little while.
Carole… thanks. Carole, this is Mrs. Mendez. She has been experiencing dizziness, chills and sweating. I just checked her blood pressure and it’s 142-over-94. I’d like you to finish taking her history while I call over to the special needs shelter and see if they can help us get her straightened out.
Mrs. Mendez, this is Carole. She’s also a nurse and she’s going to finish checking you over to see what’s going on.
PILAR:
Okay… good.

Conversation 2: Carole continues taking Mrs. Mendez’s history and begins to realize that there is a larger problem than the immediate crisis.
CAROLE:
Alright, Mrs. Mendez, can you tell me what medications you take?
PILAR:
I don’t know the names … I take two pills and sometimes insulin.
CAROLE:
Sometimes..?
PILAR:
I don’t have a lot of money and insulin is expensive. The pills, they aren’t so expensive, so I make sure I take them like the doctor said.
CAROLE:
Can you tell me what the pills are?
PILAR:
I’m sorry… no. I think one is for the blood pressure and one is for the diabetes. Oh… wait. I have one of the bottles with me. Here it is.
CAROLE:
Okay … that’s a help. Where do you go for medical care?
PILAR:
The clinic on Newton Street.
CAROLE:
The walk-in clinic?
PILAR:
Si.
CAROLE:
I’ve worked there.So… you’d see Dr. Crighton?
PILAR:
Si, or the nurses.
CAROLE:
Can you tell me how long you’ve had diabetes?
PILAR:
I’m not really sure. They tell me for a long time I need to go on a diet, but what can I do? I cook for my family and I can’t make them eat little diet food dinners. My husband and my grandson like to eat. It’s too hard to make food just for me.
CAROLE:
I understand that it’s difficult. Let’s move on to today. Can you tell me how your symptoms started? The dizziness and the sweating?
PILAR:
Okay … let me think…
CAROLE:
Sometimes when your blood sugar gets too low, you can go into what’s called hypoglycemia. Certain medications that help you manage your diabetes can cause hypoglycemia – particularly if you didn’t eat a meal after taking them. (scene ends as they continue to take history).
