Visual AgnosiaName Institution Instructor Course Date Visual AgnosiaThe discussion will be based on case study one that displays the information about the visually despaired. His visual agnosia disorder can be exhibited by the symptoms that include random visual hallucinations the confusion about his location (Dr. Dunn 2017) and the inconsistent to recall the reason he is at the hospital and his behavioral change by swearing and yelling to the staff. From the examination of the symptoms exhibited by the patient I found that he is suffering from delirium and dementia. His condition could be referred to as hospital delirium that is most common in patients who are over 70 years. The following are symptoms that suggest that he has delirium; the random slurred speech where he is yelling without a known reason for yelling. He has their favorite person they like the most. Unfamiliar people will eventually make the patient develop fear agitation and thus leading to the combative behaviors. A familiar person will be more suitable to make the patient feel relaxed and reducing their chances of behaving aggressively. Also the sitter should consider doing things that the patient like most example playing their favorite music. They should note that there should be no more than one topic of discussion when talking to the patient and should observe utilization of simple and shortened words. Use of long and complex sentences would get the patient confused thus losing the focus on the content being discussed.
