Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If a resident insists on wearing the same clothes every day, it may be helpful to:

    • A.

      Remove the soiled clothing at night when the resident is sleeping

    • B.

      Let the resident continue to wear the clothing, it is their choice

    • C.

      Do not allow the resident to put on the same clothes in the morning

    Correct Answer
    A. Remove the soiled clothing at night when the resident is sleeping
    Explanation
    Removing the soiled clothing at night when the resident is sleeping can be helpful because it ensures that the resident is wearing clean clothes each day. This promotes good hygiene and prevents the spread of germs and odors. Additionally, it may also provide an opportunity to launder the clothing and ensure that it is in good condition. Allowing the resident to continue wearing the same clothing or not allowing them to put on the same clothes in the morning may not address the issue of cleanliness and hygiene.

    Explanation
    Residents may become aggressive when performing personal care due to various reasons. Feeling pain and not being able to communicate it can lead to frustration and aggression as the resident may be unable to express their discomfort. Not understanding what is being done to them can also cause fear or confusion, leading to aggression. A caregiver invading their personal space can make the resident feel violated and react aggressively. Lastly, the resident feeling overwhelmed by the situation or the tasks being performed can also result in aggression. Therefore, all of the given options can potentially be the cause of a resident becoming aggressive during personal care.

This ensures that the water is not too hot or too cold, which can be uncomfortable or even harmful.

    Explanation
    The statement is false because a very cool room temperature is not always the best environment for toileting.

      Caregivers may never brush a resident's teeth

    Correct Answer
    B. Use gentle short strokes
    Explanation
    When a caregiver is brushing the teeth of a resident, it is recommended to use gentle short strokes. This approach ensures that the teeth and gums are effectively cleaned without causing any discomfort or injury to the resident. Quick vigorous brush strokes may be too rough and could potentially harm the resident's oral health.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cause fear and resistance to toileting

    Surrounding a resident with 3 or 4 care staff when toileting may cause fear and resistance because it can be overwhelming and intimidating for the resident.
