    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Emergency drills ensure an emergency plan is workable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Emergency drills are an essential part of emergency preparedness. They allow organizations to test their emergency plans in a controlled environment, identifying any weaknesses or areas for improvement. By simulating various emergency scenarios, drills help ensure that the emergency plan is effective and can be implemented smoothly in real-life situations. This practice enables individuals to become familiar with their roles and responsibilities during emergencies, enhances coordination among different teams, and increases overall preparedness. Therefore, the statement "Emergency drills ensure an emergency plan is workable" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    This risk drastically increases in the elderly.

    • A.

      Skin breakdown

    • B.

      Infection

    • C.

      Choking

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    As people age, their skin becomes thinner and more fragile, making them more susceptible to skin breakdown. Additionally, their immune system weakens, making them more prone to infections. As for choking, elderly individuals may have difficulty swallowing due to weakened muscles or other health conditions, increasing their risk of choking. Therefore, all of the given options - skin breakdown, infection, and choking - are risks that significantly increase in the elderly population.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    This age group experiences more falls than other age groups.

    • A.

      Middle Adult

    • B.

      Elderly

    • C.

      Infants

    Correct Answer
    B. Elderly
    Explanation
    The elderly experience more falls than other age groups due to a combination of factors. As people age, their balance and coordination may decline, making them more prone to falling. Additionally, age-related health conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and vision problems can increase the risk of falls. Medications commonly taken by the elderly can also contribute to dizziness or loss of balance. Environmental factors, such as hazards in the home or uneven surfaces, can further increase the likelihood of falls. Therefore, it is not surprising that the elderly experience more falls compared to middle adults and infants.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Infants have the highest rate of medication errors.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Infants have the highest rate of medication errors because they are more vulnerable to medication mistakes due to their small size, immature organ systems, and difficulty in accurately measuring and administering medications. Additionally, infants often require specialized dosing calculations and adjustments based on their weight, which can increase the risk of errors. The lack of communication skills in infants also makes it challenging to identify adverse drug reactions or side effects, further contributing to the higher rate of medication errors in this age group.

      JEFF

    • C.

      ALEX

    Correct Answer
    C. ALEX
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ALEX because the question is asking for the name of the learning network available 24/7 for completing computer based training. Since the names STEVE and JEFF are not related to learning networks or training, the only logical option is ALEX.

    Rate this question:

      ALEX

    • B.

    • C.

      AdvocateWorks

    Correct Answer
    C. AdvocateWorks
    Explanation
    AdvocateWorks is the most likely option for clocking in and out and requesting PTO among the given choices. ALEX and HR Direct do not seem to be relevant to these functions. AdvocateWorks, on the other hand, implies a system or platform that could be used for such purposes, as it suggests a tool or software that aids in managing HR-related tasks and employee benefits.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    How do you turn off the water after performing hand hygiene?

    • A.

      With your elbow

    • B.

      With your hand

    • C.

      With a paper towel

    Correct Answer
    C. With a paper towel
    Explanation
    After performing hand hygiene, turning off the water with a paper towel is the correct answer. This is because using a paper towel creates a barrier between your clean hands and the potentially dirty faucet handle, preventing recontamination. By using a paper towel, you can avoid touching the faucet handle directly and maintain the cleanliness of your hands.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Gloves, gowns, and masks are typically designed to be single-use items in healthcare settings to prevent the spread of infection. Reusing these items can increase the risk of contamination and transmission of pathogens. Therefore, it is generally recommended to use them only once and then dispose of them properly.
