how to check in on your rope bunny

(orientation check)

When your doctor has concerns about your awareness, he does something called an orientation check. Really simple questions that anyone should know, until they have lost awareness. And no you don’t need to be a doc to ask.

Here are the questions: (time, place, person orientation)

  • what’s your name?
  • where are you?
  • who am I?
  • what’s today’s date?
  • how old are you?
  • do you know the time?

These questions tell you the person is alert and aware of their surroundings, But most of all, they tell you that the person is verbal.

If the person cannot respond and they are new to you, suspend play. Get them medical attention. Do not pass go or collect $200!
