After having gone on a day trip with their friends and family members, patients return to the facility complaining to you that they are hungry and thirsty.  What action should you take as a nursing assistant?

A Upon discovery of what the patient is feeling, you must report it to the head nurse.

Any form of suspected abuse must be reported by the nursing assistant.  This is your duty, even if you suspect your patient’s family or friends.  The other options would not prevent this same problem from happening again.
