Upon entering the room, you will find several recliner chairs up against the wall and several tables directly in front of you surrounded by chairs. There is a small is a TV to view for the patients entertainment While conducting my IPR there is twelve clients and three employees in the room.

Her weight is 177 lbs and her height is 5’4’’. The clients overall appearance is low kept. She is not well groomed. The client has episodes where she abruptly stops mumbling and begins to stare at the TV. The client may be suffering from delusion of reference, because she states the TV commercial is trying to tell her something. The client acknowledges my presences in a friend manner and is very receptive to me, and she agrees to conduct the IPR.
