Hammer and Otoscope Mini Mental Status Exam

Hi all:

When we need to perform MMSE, do we need to do every thing like FA on page. 57?
But in practice cases the physical exam in the patient note only says alert and oriented x 3, so... do we need to do every thing in MMSE?

I disagree

Hi there,

Just practice to tell the patient that u are gonna ask a few questions and then ask almost 3-4 questions like the
1. Orientation of the person
2. Spell "world "backwards
3. Ask the patient to Fold a paper into half
Practice it doing in 1 min and that's it
Your MMSE is done .
This is what I did.
The KEY is stay confident
