    Correct Answer
    B. Sit her in a upright position
    Explanation

      Droplets

    • D.

      Coughing

    Correct Answer
    C. Spores
    Explanation
    C-diff, also known as Clostridium difficile, is spread through spores. These spores are formed by the bacteria and can survive in the environment for long periods of time. When a person comes into contact with these spores, usually through touching contaminated surfaces or objects, they can become infected. The spores can also be ingested, leading to infection. Sneezing and coughing can spread other respiratory infections, but in the case of C-diff, it is primarily spread through spores.

    Mr. Jones is complaining that he is dizzy, what should you have him do?

      Lay down

    • C.

      Ask him whats wrong

    • D.

      Tell him that everything is ok

    Correct Answer
    B. Put his head in between legs
    Explanation
    Putting one's head between their legs can help alleviate dizziness by increasing blood flow to the brain. This position helps to promote circulation and reduce the feeling of lightheadedness. By bending forward and allowing the head to hang down, gravity assists in improving blood flow to the brain, which can help alleviate the symptoms of dizziness.

      Both at the same time

    • D.

      Ask resident which side they prefer

    Correct Answer
    A. Strong side
    Explanation
    When undressing a resident with a weak side (left arm), it is recommended to undress the strong side first. This is because the strong side can provide support and balance while undressing the weak side. By undressing the strong side first, it ensures that the resident remains stable and comfortable throughout the process.
