What is the first thing the nurse aid should do when the electric shaver that the nurse aide is using to shave a client begins to spark and smoke?

A Unplug the shaver

Remembered that the patient’s safety must come first whenever giving customer care . Unplugging a malfunctioning device will stop any sparks or smoke. If the customer, or anyone nearby, is on oxygen, the sparks could trigger a fire, so you may need to quickly move people out of the area. After everyone is safe, notify the nurse of the incident. Never utilize another customer’s personal items; this is strictly prohibited due to possible infection.

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.
