Description: Marcus, a 65 year old man who had sustained a stroke had turned to Monique, an occupational therapist working in an outpatient setting, to regain his ability to drive. Frustrated that he does not meet the laws requirement of having a 140 degrees of visual field, Marcus informed Monique that "[he plans] on driving anyway." Besides documenting it in the medical record, Monique did not report this statement to anyone. After a few occupational therapy sessions, Monique noticed bruising on Marcus' body. When Monique questioned Marcus, he explained that he was involved in an accident that injured him and another person. by Mind Map: Description: Marcus, a 65 year old man who had sustained a stroke had turned to Monique, an occupational therapist working in an outpatient setting, to regain his ability to drive.
