A patient has had hip surgery. What should her legs be?

A abducted

Following hip surgery, the customer should be positioned to maintain natural alignment of the leg. A pillow (“abductor pillow”) or wedge is placed between the legs keeps the legs in the correct position. Ankles and legs cannot be crossed, and toes should point toward the ceiling. The hip should not be rotated inwards or outwards. The customer can never lie on the non-operative side.

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.
