A nursing assistant is helping a patient to walk. What should the assistant do if the patient becomes faint and begins to fall?

A Ease resident to the floor and call for help

Before helping any patient walk, take time to assess how much assistance will be needed. Let the patient sit at the edge of the bed and dangle their legs before standing. When walking, if the patient becomes weak or dizzy, protect them and yourself by easing the patient to the floor. Do this by holding them under the arms while putting one of your legs forward to support the patient while lowering them to the floor. Keep your knees bent to avoid a back injury.

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.
