A patient who suffers from diabetes and is scheduled to have heart surgery later on in the day is assisted by a nursing assistant at breakfast time. Of the following breakfast trays, which one is right for the patient to consume?

A No food at all

The resident is going to fall under the Nothing by mouth category and should not consume any kind of food prior to surgery (including beverages and liquids). Although answer B would not be the right diet for someone going into surgery, it represents a clear liquid diet. Answer A is not an adequate diet for someone who suffers from diabetes, which is why it should be avoided. So outside of D, none of the diets is right for a person who is going to have surgery later in the day.

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.
