    Which of the following is NOT a link in the Chain of Infection

      Infectious agent

    • B.

      Reservoir

    • C.

      Exit portal

    • F.

      Healthy host

    Correct Answer
    F. Healthy host
    Explanation
    A healthy host is not a link in the chain of infection because it refers to an individual who does not have an infectious disease and therefore does not contribute to the transmission of the infection. The other options in the question (infectious agent, reservoir, exit portal, mode of transmission, and entry portal) are all components of the chain of infection as they are involved in the spread and transmission of infectious diseases.

      Answers B & C

    Correct Answer
    E. When there is a possibility of moist bodily fluids coming into contact with skin or clothing
    Explanation
    A gown or apron should be worn when there is a possibility of moist bodily fluids coming into contact with skin or clothing. This is important to protect oneself from any potential contamination or infection. Wearing a gown or apron during all work, only when the client is bleeding, only when the client is vomiting, or when cleaning may not be necessary in every situation, whereas the possibility of bodily fluids coming into contact with skin or clothing is a more specific and relevant criterion for wearing a gown or apron.

    Correct Answer

  • 5. 

    What type of sling would you use for toileting a client?

    • A.

      Pivot Sling

    • B.

      Access Sling

    • C.

      Hammock Sling

    • D.

      Band sling

    Correct Answer
    B. Access Sling
    Explanation
    An access sling would be the appropriate choice for toileting a client. This type of sling is specifically designed to provide easy access to the client's lower body, allowing for efficient and safe transfers to and from the toilet. The access sling typically has a larger opening at the bottom, providing ample space for the client to use the toilet while still being supported and secured by the sling. This ensures comfort and dignity for the client while also facilitating the caregiver's ability to assist with toileting tasks.

  • 6. 

    Please watch the video and then answer the following question. Which of the following may help prevent germs? (you must select 4 items)

    • A.

      Hand Washing

    • B.

      Clean as you go

    • C.

      Refuse treatment to those who are contagious

    • D.

      Isolating people who are ill

    • E.

      Wearing Personal Protective Equipment

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Hand Washing
    B. Clean as you go
    D. Isolating people who are ill
    E. Wearing Personal Protective Equipment
    Explanation
    Hand washing helps prevent the spread of germs by removing them from the hands. Clean as you go refers to the practice of cleaning up after oneself to maintain cleanliness and prevent the buildup of germs. Isolating people who are ill helps prevent the spread of germs by limiting contact with others. Wearing Personal Protective Equipment, such as gloves and masks, provides a barrier between the wearer and germs, reducing the risk of transmission. Refusing treatment to those who are contagious is not an effective method for preventing the spread of germs, as it does not address other potential sources of transmission.
