    Explanation
    This statement is false because in a computerized-appointment system, patient information is necessary to make an appointment.

    • A.

      TRUE

    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    When a patient experiences an allergic reaction, it can lead to respiratory distress. This occurs because the body's immune system overreacts to an allergen, causing inflammation in the airways. This inflammation can result in symptoms such as difficulty breathing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Therefore, it is true that a patient suffering from an allergic reaction may suffer respiratory distress.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    It is not acceptable for a medical administrative assistant to give a diabetic patient a soft drink if the patient is having a diabetic emergency. During a diabetic emergency, the patient's blood sugar levels may be dangerously high or low, and they require immediate medical attention. Soft drinks contain high amounts of sugar and can worsen the situation. In such cases, it is important to follow proper medical protocols and seek assistance from a healthcare professional.

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The given statement is false because the registration process needs to be completed not only for new patients but also for existing patients who may need to update their information or provide additional details.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    If an authorization on a registration form is not signed, payment for services rendered in the medical office could be delayed.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    If an authorization on a registration form is not signed, it means that the patient has not given consent for the medical office to provide services. Without this signed authorization, the medical office may not be able to bill the patient's insurance or receive payment for the services rendered. This could result in a delay in receiving payment for the services provided by the medical office. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    New patients should be asked to arrive early for an appointment.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that new patients should arrive early for an appointment. This is likely because new patients may need to fill out paperwork or provide additional information, which can take time. Arriving early allows for a smoother check-in process and ensures that the appointment can start on time. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Because physicians and nurses are on staff, a medical administrative assistant does not need to be concerned with emergency situations occurring in the office.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    A medical administrative assistant should be concerned with emergency situations occurring in the office, even if there are physicians and nurses on staff. While the physicians and nurses may be responsible for providing direct medical care, the administrative assistant plays a crucial role in coordinating emergency response, communicating with emergency services, and ensuring the safety and well-being of patients and staff during emergencies. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that a medical administrative assistant does not need to be concerned with emergency situations.
