Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You should wait 20 minutes to take a temperature, pulse, respiration, or blood pressure if a person has just eaten, drank a hot or cold beverage, just smoked, or exercised.  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because waiting 20 minutes after eating, drinking a hot or cold beverage, smoking, or exercising is not necessary to take a temperature, pulse, respiration, or blood pressure. These activities do not affect the accuracy of these measurements, so there is no need to wait before taking them.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A 2 month old presents to the clinic with an axillary temperature of  99.5  A rectal temperature should be obtained. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A rectal temperature should be obtained in a 2-month-old presenting with an axillary temperature of 99.5 because rectal temperature is considered the most accurate method for measuring body temperature in infants. Axillary temperature measurements can be less accurate and may underestimate a fever in infants. Therefore, to ensure an accurate assessment of the infant's temperature, a rectal temperature should be obtained.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Manual pulse and respirations should be taken for 60 seconds. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is True because when taking manual pulse and respirations, it is recommended to count for a full 60 seconds in order to get an accurate measurement. This allows for a more precise assessment of the person's heart rate and breathing rate, which can be important in determining their overall health status. Counting for a shorter period of time may result in an inaccurate measurement.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Placing a pulse oximeter sensor on a finger of an arm that is using an automatic blood pressure cuff will cause an inaccurate reading. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Placing a pulse oximeter sensor on a finger of an arm that is using an automatic blood pressure cuff will cause an inaccurate reading because the pressure exerted by the cuff can interfere with the blood flow and accuracy of the pulse oximeter sensor. The cuff may compress the blood vessels in the finger, affecting the oxygen saturation measurement provided by the pulse oximeter. Therefore, the reading obtained in this scenario would not be reliable.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You can place a pulse oximeter sideways on a finger if the patient has on dark nail polish. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The answer is true because pulse oximeters work by emitting light through the finger and measuring the amount of light absorbed by the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Dark nail polish may interfere with the accuracy of the reading if the pulse oximeter is placed directly on top of the nail, but by placing it sideways on the finger, the light can still pass through the skin and provide an accurate reading.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If a patient has elevated blood pressure with or without complaints of chest pain, the Site RN needs to be called to triage the patient. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a patient has elevated blood pressure, it could be an indication of an underlying health issue. The Site RN (Registered Nurse) needs to be called to triage the patient because they have the expertise to assess the patient's condition, determine the severity of the situation, and provide appropriate medical intervention if necessary. Additionally, the mention of chest pain, even if it is not explicitly mentioned as a complaint, further emphasizes the need for immediate attention from the Site RN. Therefore, the statement "the Site RN needs to be called to triage the patient" is true in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Blood pressure cuff size affects the accuracy of the results of a patient’s blood pressure. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The size of the blood pressure cuff does indeed affect the accuracy of the results. If the cuff is too small, it can give a falsely high reading, while a cuff that is too large can give a falsely low reading. This is because the cuff needs to fit properly around the arm in order to accurately measure the pressure of the blood flow. Therefore, it is important to use the correct cuff size to obtain accurate blood pressure measurements.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If the forearm is used for taking a blood pressure the provider does not need to be informed that this site was used.  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The forearm is not a recommended site for taking blood pressure measurements. The provider needs to be informed if this site is used because it may give inaccurate readings compared to the standard upper arm site. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Orthostatic hypotension is a form of hypotension in which a person's blood pressure suddenly falls when the person stands up. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Orthostatic hypotension is a condition where a person experiences a sudden drop in blood pressure when they stand up. This can lead to symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and even fainting. The correct answer is true because it accurately describes the nature of orthostatic hypotension.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Taking orthostatic hypotension vital signs involves the patient laying, sitting, and standing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Taking orthostatic hypotension vital signs involves the patient assuming different positions - lying, sitting, and standing. This is done to assess how the blood pressure changes with changes in posture. Orthostatic hypotension refers to a drop in blood pressure upon standing, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness or lightheadedness. By monitoring the blood pressure in different positions, healthcare providers can identify any abnormalities and provide appropriate interventions if necessary. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Pain Assessment is only needed to be done when the patient complains of pain. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Pain assessment is not only needed when the patient complains of pain. It is essential to assess pain regularly, even if the patient does not explicitly complain about it. Pain can be subjective and may vary in intensity, so regular assessments help healthcare professionals monitor and manage pain effectively. Additionally, some patients may not be able to communicate their pain, such as infants, individuals with cognitive impairments, or those who are unconscious. Therefore, pain assessment should be performed routinely to ensure optimal patient care.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The FACES pain scale is useful for children who are not verbal but can point to a picture. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The FACES pain scale is a visual tool that uses a series of faces with different expressions to help children communicate their level of pain. It is particularly helpful for children who are unable to verbalize their pain but can still point to a picture. This allows healthcare providers to accurately assess and address the child's pain, improving their overall care and comfort.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    It is only important to verify the pediatric immunization record with Well Child Check visits.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. It is not only important to verify the pediatric immunization record with Well Child Check visits. Immunization records should be verified regularly and not just during Well Child Check visits. Regular verification ensures that the child is up to date on all required vaccinations and helps in preventing the spread of diseases.

    The higher the BMI, the higher the risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A higher BMI is associated with an increased risk of various diseases including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers. This means that individuals with a higher BMI are more likely to develop these health conditions compared to those with a lower BMI. Therefore, the statement "The higher the BMI, the higher the risk for certain diseases" is true.

  • 15. 

    Common drug allergy reactions are nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, dry mouth, headaches, muscle aches and pains. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that common drug allergy reactions include symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, dry mouth, headaches, muscle aches, and pains. However, this statement is false. While these symptoms can be side effects of certain medications, they are not necessarily indicative of an allergic reaction. Allergic reactions to drugs can manifest in various ways, including skin rashes, hives, swelling, difficulty breathing, and anaphylaxis. Therefore, the given statement is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that can be life threatening. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can result in life-threatening symptoms. It is characterized by symptoms such as difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat and tongue, rapid heartbeat, and low blood pressure. Without prompt medical treatment, anaphylaxis can be fatal. Therefore, the statement "Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that can be life-threatening" is true.

    LSCC MA staff should ask all adult patients if they have any Advance Directives on their first visit and at 2 more visits.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because asking adult patients about their Advance Directives is an important part of providing comprehensive and patient-centered care. Advance Directives are legal documents that allow individuals to specify their healthcare preferences in advance, ensuring that their wishes are respected if they become unable to make decisions for themselves. By asking about Advance Directives on the first visit and at two more visits, the LSCC MA staff can ensure that they have the most up-to-date information and can provide appropriate care based on the patient's preferences.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a patient has an Advance Directive, it is important for LSCC staff to request a copy and scan it into NextGen. This is because an Advance Directive is a legal document that outlines a person's healthcare preferences and decisions in the event that they are unable to communicate them. By scanning it into NextGen, the staff can ensure that the information is easily accessible and can be referenced as needed to provide appropriate care to the patient.
