Mouth sponges are available for these situations. Encouraging extra fluids may cause the patient choking. Not doing anything is a failure to offer proper end of life care. A patient may not be alert enough to consciously close his or her mouth.

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.
