When offering A.M. care, one of the older patients who is currently suffering from cognitive changes telling a nursing assistant he do not wish to pick out what he is going to wear. The reason is it will take too long. He wants the nursing assistant to pick for him instead. The best response from the nursing assistant would be:

A “I’m in no hurry. Would you like me to help you pick something out?”

Keeping the patient active and engaged is very important. It is better if patients pick out clothing because this gives them some control over their situation. However, they are still growing in their comfort level, so the best course of action is offering to help. The other options do not promote emotional support and do not help the patient build confidence. It is necessary to provide both an emotionally supportive response and help keep the patient feel as independent as possible.

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.
