A new patient who is being helped by a nursing assitant comments on how much he hates being in the facility. He said that he doesn't have friends and just doesn't know what’s going on. What should the nursing assistant say?

A I'm sorry you feel like that. What can I do to help out? I can provide you with a daily schedule so you have a better understanding as to what's going on. I can also help introduce you to people so you can make friends.

Understanding the patient’s feelings and not blowing it off is very important. It is necessary to offer suggestions and how they can interact with other members of the community too. Answer A, B, and C are all not appropriate because none of the answers offer support or possible suggestions and how they might cope with the new surroundings as well. It is necessary to both acknowledge how a patient is feeling while also offering helpful suggestions on how to make it better.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
