SINUSITIS | OET SPEAKING ROLE PLAY SCRIPT

Patient

Your preparation time is over. You can now start your role play. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up.

Good morning, My name is Narso Andrew, one of the registered nurses from the hospital. I’m here to do the checkup following Patricia’s Right Hip replacement. For confirmation, Am I talking to Patricia?

Patient

Good morning nurse. Yes, I am patricia.

Hello patricia Nice to meet you.

Patient

Nice to meet you, Nurse.

Tell me Patricia how are you doing after the hip replacement?

Patient

I am feeling better, And also I can now walk much easier.

That’s good to hear.

Patient

Well Nurse I am feeling tired though as I have been sleeping badly the last few nights.

All right Patricia, can you please elicit the possible reasons for your poor sleep?

Patient

Nurse, My face feels a bit painful and I had a headache for a few days. Also I had a cold last week and my nose is badly blocked which is disturbing my sleep.

Do you have any stress or anxiety?

Patient

Actually, I am not anxious or stressed.

Okay, For my better understanding of your condition, Can I ask you a few questions that will give me more insight into your headache?

Patient

Sure, You may please ask.

Thank you patricia. I would like to know the severity of your headache. How would you rate your headache? On a scale of 1 to 10? In Which one is the least pain And ten is the worst pain you ever had.

Patient

Definitely nurse, The headache is bad. Out of ten, I would say seven.

Sorry to hear that. May I know whether the headache gets worse when moving?

Patient

Yes, I feel it gets worse when I lean forward.

Okay, Do you have a fever associated with this?

Patient

No nurse, I don’t have a fever.

And what about the change in appetite? Loss of sense of taste and all?

Patient

Nurse, I am eating less as it hurts while chewing.

Oh, I see.

Patient

Also, I have lost my sense of taste.

All right, Thank you for answering my questions. Patricia try not to worry. From your words the symptoms suggest acute sinusitis, which is inflammation of the sinus lining at the back of the nose.

Patient

Okay.

This is a very common condition which is usually self resolving and not a serious issue. So no need to be panicked about it.

Patient

All right.

Now I will recommend some self-help treatments for your condition.

Patient

Okay nurse.

It is recommended to consume more fluids, because high fluid intake will loosen secretions.

Patient

Okay, I will consume more fluids then.

That’s great. Also, gently blow the nose to clear the sinus and try to keep your head elevated when lying down.

Patient

All right, I will do that.

Following my suggestions will help you to deal with your condition to a greater degree.

Patient

Nurse, I will do what you have suggested but I think I need to see a GP.

Your thoughts are sensible. I suggest you see the GP only if there is no improvement in one week.

Patient

Is it?

Yes patricia. So that the GP will prescribe for appropriate treatment, and also can rule out other underlying conditions if any.

Patient

Okay Nurse I understand that.

I reassure you that if you follow my suggestions, you will get cured and can manage your condition much more effectively.

Patient

All right Nurse, I will try your suggestions initially and if there is no improvement I will see my GP.

That’s perfect, Thank you for accepting my suggestions. I wish you a speedy recovery.

Patient

Thank you nurse, That is the end of your only speaking role play. All the best.

Thank you.
