A resident complains that her hand hurts where the IV is running. What is the best thing to do when the nurse aid notices that the hand is puffy?

A Notify the IV nurse that the infusion appears to have infiltrated

Infiltration occurs when the IV fluid leaks into the tissue due to a dislodged or misplaced IV catheter . The nurse assistant should supervisor the IV site and mark if it becomes swollen, cool to the touch, or painful. The skin near the IV site may look pale. To avoid pulling the line, always be careful when moving or assisting a customer with an IV.

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.
