Question:

An older patient with little mobility has a physical therapy session at 10 A.M. and an occupational therapy session at 2 P.M. What schedule should the nursing assistant set up when planning the daily schedule for him/her?

A Offer A.M. care at 8 A.M. and afternoon care at 4 P.M.
explanation

Generally, older patients need more time in between activities in order to rest. Therefore, two hours between care and therapy sessions need to be provided. Option B provides the two-hour window, with two hours before the first session and two hours after the final session. Every other option has at least one one-hour break in between sessions and offered care, which is not enough unless there are other needs that need to be addressed.

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.
