Providing the patient with a means for calling help is the very first thing a nursing assistant needs to do when this is brought to their attention. If a patient is no suffering from light-headedness it means they may be at a greater risk of falling. It is important to offer this first as the patient’s safety is a top priority. Having a patient move up and down in order to get their blood pumping throughout the body is not necessary and may prove unnecessary (it is important to have the nurse look in on the patient). Having the patient layback down may be needed, but it isn’t the first task an assistant should take.
