Question:

A nursing assistant is providing AM care for a patient who recently suffered a stroke and now has weakness in their right side. What should a nursing assistant do first when dressing the patient?

A After removing the pants, the nursing assistant needs to take the pants off beginning with the left leg, followed by the right leg
explanation

The patient's area which is weak or suffers from paralysis on one particular side should be undressed last and then clothed first while a nursing assistant is dressing the patient. With answer A, the answer is backward. With answer B, there is no need to remove all of the clothing prior to dressing, unless the patient has soiled himself or herself. For answer D, again there is no need to remove the clothing from the upper portion of the body first. This can happen after addressing the lower half of the body.

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.
