Question:

What is the first thing a nurse aid should do when he/she discovers fire in a client's room?

A Remove the patient
explanation

The nurse aide should be familiar with all fire safety policies and protocols. All staff must respond to keep clients safe when a fire alarm sounds. Remember “R.A.C.E.” to fast act. R = Rescue/Remove all people who are not able to take care of themselves. A = Alarm, if it has not already been done. Pulling the alarm can be done simultaneously as rescue. C = Confine/Contain the fire or smoke by closing doors to prevent or slow the spread. Smoke is especially dangerous for everyone. E = Extinguish the fire if possible, using a handheld fire extinguisher. Attempt to extinguish only small fires, as long as you can stay still safe and have an escape route.

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.
