Question:

When talking to a patient with a vision impairment, which is the best way?

A Announce your presence before entering the room
explanation

Speaking in a natural tone and volume when communicating with a customer who has a visual impairment. Loss of vision does not mean loss of hearing. Always identify yourself when entering the room; don’t assume the customer recognizes your voice. If others are present, introduce them. Turn off the television and minimize distractions. Use normal language; it is unnecessary to avoid words like “see” or “look.” Speak directly to the customer. Be sure to let them know when you are leaving the room.

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.
