Question:

When working with a DASH diet patient who reduces his food intake and shows very little interest in eating. What would be the best way for a nursing assistant to deal with this problem?

A Check to see what the patient’s prescribed dietary supplements are and give them to the patient.
explanation

Providing the patient with his or her prescribed daily nutritional supplements would be the most appropriate action for a nursing assistant to take. Discussing the problem with the patient may also be helpful, but it is unlikely to make them eat more. Any food that the family brings in may be more appealing to the patient, but likely would not comply with the patient’s prescribed DASH diet. The nutritionist may have to be involved at some point, but the RN or physician on duty would be the one to make that decision.

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.
