  • explain to the patient that you will be drawing a number in the palm of their hand.

  • explain to the patient what is up and down, the distal side is usually up as this is a typical orientation of the palm.

  • demonstrate with eyes open.

  • ask the patient to close their eyes.

  • with a blunt item such as your fingertip draw a number across the palm and ask the patient to identify it.
