Question:

When the nurse lifts an object, proper body mechanics dictates that the nurse places his feet ______.

A 12in - 18in apart
explanation

When lifting any heavy object, start by placing your feet shoulder width apart, about 12-18 inches, with one foot slightly in front of the other. Squat down, bending only your hips and knees. Keep your back straight and shoulders back as you slowly stand. Never twist or turn when lifting. Hold the object close to your body, near your navel.

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.
