2. You notify your buddy nurse that the blood pressure is well outside of the normal range, and
he says ‘don’t worry about it, as its normal for her’. However, you notice that the previous

3. You go back to the patient and sit with the patient. They tell you they have a headache and

she begins to slur her words.

4. You again approach your buddy nurse regarding the headache, slurred words and the blood
pressure. He says ‘fine, take it again’. This time the bloop pressure is higher, and the pulse
