Of the following options, which one needs to be reported to the staff nurse right away when a nursing assistant is assisting a patient?

A When helping a patient dress, they notice a diabetic resident now has an abrasion on their foot.

Because the wound of residents with diabetes will not heal as quickly as someone without diabetes, they are at a greater risk for infection. Because of this, any kind of cut, irritation of the skin or abrasion needs to be reported right away to the nurse. In answer A, if a resident is in need of more supplies the nursing assistant needs to help with this (such as more towels and soap for help with the additional perineal cleaning). With answer C, it’s up to the nursing assistant to change out the bedding, and for answer D it is perfectly fine to wash the resident’s hair if they request it and it doesn’t go against current orders or medical needs of the resident.

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.
