CASE SIMULATION VIGNETTE #1 (HAN)
Name: Han Lin
DOB: 1-1-1950
Residence: Apple Street Shelter. She has been there for three months
Mental Health Clinician: Marcia Devers, first contact 1-1-2005
Psychiatrist: Ed Vasquez, MD
Primary Care Provider: Connie Nguyen, ARNP
Han is a 64-year-old, single, Chinese immigrant who came to California from Hong Kong in 1957. She has limited
English proficiency and is unemployed. She has two children (now in their 20’s) who were removed from her
home many years ago. She periodically expresses a desire to re-connect with them. No other known family or
community supports. She has lived in mental health residential facilities throughout the past 10 years and has
never really worked. Housekeeping and maintaining personal hygiene when she is depressed is a challenge.
She has diagnoses of major depression with psychosis and PTSD. Han has received extensive services from 5
different mental health centers over the last 10 years. In the last year, she made 51 phone calls to the mental
health crisis line. She makes frequent complaints that her psychiatric medications are not working while
practitioners note inconsistency of her taking her medications.
Han has significant physical health conditions including blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Han has a
strong connection with her primary care nurse practitioner but still over-utilizes the Ed (She has had 9 ED visits in
the last two years, mostly regarding anxiety or her heart condition).

Clinician Progress Notes
I spent time with Han and reviewed care plan elements along with her residential
care provider who also served as interpreter. She describes her mood as “good as
any – who cares?” Han mostly wants help with re-connecting with her (grown)
children, but otherwise seems un-interested in mental health care. Does not
appear to have any psychosis. No SI. PHQ-9 = 18. States she is taking her meds but
her caregiver reports it is a daily struggle to get her to take them.
Medications verified with residential care worker:
Risperidone 3mg PO QHS, Zoloft 100mg QAM, Ambien 5mg PO QHS, Amlodipine
10mg, Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg, Glyburide 5mg, Metformin 5mg
