What should the nurse aid remember to do when operating a manual bed?

A Fold cranks under the bed

Being sure to first lock the bed by pressing down the levers on the wheels at the head and foot of the bed when working a manual bed . At the end of the bed there are three cranks which monitor the bed height, raising and lowering the head and feet too. Cranks are turned clockwise (left to right) to raise each section, and counter-clockwise to lower them. After positioning the client, always fold the cranks under the bed to prevent others from tripping or falling.

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.
