Recently, your patient learned that her spouse had passed away.  As a nursing assistant, what is the best way for you to deal with the patient?

A You can sit with your patient and offer support in case they wish to talk about what they’re feeling.

Patients may need to talk about their feelings of memories of the loss of their loved one when they has lost a loved one.  Sometimes, all the patient's needs is really just sitting with them and providing them comfort.  If you were to ignore the subject or change the conversation, utilize humor or even bring other people into the room when they may not feel like talking to anyone, could prevent your patient from actually dealing with their grief.

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.
