Liver Cirrhosis OET Speaking Roleplay Script

Nurse  

Hi. Good morning. I am Boris, one of the charge nurses in the hospital. May I confirm your name, please?

Patient 

Hi. Good morning, Boris. My name is Alice

Nurse 

Hi, Alice. How are you feeling today?

Patient 

Well, I feel a bit nervous and desperate.

Nurse 

I am so sorry to hear that. I couldn’t understand your situation. Alice, we are here to help. You always hope for the best.

Patient 

Yeah, that’s correct.

Nurse 

You are admitted to the hospital with liver cirrhosis. Right?

Patient 

Yes, that’s right.

Nurse 

I am here today to collect information about you. If you don’t mind, shall I ask you some questions?

Patient 

Yes, sure, you may. Please.

Nurse 

Thank you, Alice. First, I would like to know about your general background. Let’s begin with your family.

Patient 

I’m a single child to my parents. They live in New York, running a family business.

Nurse 

All right. So where do you live? Do you have another home?

Patient 

No. I share an apartment with two of my friends.

Nurse 

Okay. Do your friends drink?

Patient 

Yes, They drink often.

Nurse 

Could you please tell me about your drinking habit?

Patient 

I enjoy partying at weekends and drink alcohol most weekday evenings.

Nurse 

All right. Do your parents drink too?

Patient 

No. My parents are teetotallers, and they strongly disapprove of my drinking—and partying habits.

Nurse 

Oh, I see. Could you just recall when you started drinking alcohol?

Patient 

I have been a heavy drinker since my late teens.

Nurse 

Your drinking habit is the cause of your current situation. Are you aware of that?

Patient 

Yes, Nurse. I know it. I’m addicted to alcohol. I would like to give up drinking. But how?

Nurse 

I am really glad to know that you are ready to leave alcohol. Don’t get upset. Overcoming addiction to alcohol is possible. It is not an impossible thing.

Patient 

It might be. But I have to drink daily. I’ll start shivering and lose myself. If I didn’t drink on time.

Nurse 

Alice. Stopping the consumption of alcohol can’t be done overnight. It’s a gradual process. It can only be achieved by reducing the quantity of consumption.

Patient 

Oh, I see. So, are you saying that it is possible for me too?

Nurse 

Yes, absolutely. You are very young, and if you are willing to control your alcohol consumption, definitely you can come back to your normal life. But you should be ready to change your habits and lifestyle.

Patient 

What changes are needed? Nurse, Can you please explain me in detail?

Nurse 

First and foremost, avoid circumstances that tempt you to drink like partying every weekend. Spending time with friends while they drink. Living with people who drink, etc.

Patient 

Avoiding partying can be done, but how can I stay away from my friends? We live in the same apartment.

Nurse 

Alice, I acknowledge your situation. But what? I suggest you move to another home or stay with your parents till you get better. Or stop sharing the apartment with those who drink and move to another apartment.

Patient 

Moving to a new place from friends will hurt their emotions.

Nurse 

Convey to your friends that you are moving because of your health condition. It won’t hurt them in any sense.

Patient 

Yes. A good idea. That can be done.

Nurse 

Also, you can join the Alcoholics Anonymous group. It is a mutual aid fellowship with the stated purpose of enabling its members to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

Patient 

That will be more helpful in this process. I will join the group.

Nurse 

Alice, your optimistic attitude itself shows a good sign of recovery. You should follow the medications without any failure. At the same time, with utmost priority, dilution of alcohol should be done.

Patient 

Thank you, nurse, for your support and advice. I feel much more confident now. Definitely. I will follow the instructions.

Nurse 

Thank you for sharing the information. If you require any help, please press the bell button on the left side of the bed.

Patient 

Sure, Nurse.

Nurse 

I wish you a speedy recovery. Take care.

Patient 

Thank you.
