    • C.

      Feel, have

    Correct Answer
    A. Have, am
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have, am" because the first blank requires a verb that indicates possession, and "have" is the appropriate choice. The second blank requires a verb that describes a state or condition, and "am" fits this requirement as it indicates the person's state of feeling nauseous.

    Correct Answer
    C. Are

    The correct answer is "are" because the question is asking about the subject "you," which is a plural pronoun. In English, when referring to multiple people or objects, we use the plural form of the verb "to be," which is "are."

    C. Do you have

      Do you do

    Correct Answer
    B. Are you doing
    Explanation
    The question is asking about someone's plans or actions for tonight. The correct answer is "are you doing" because it is the correct form of the present continuous tense to ask about someone's current actions or plans.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cousin
    Explanation
    The relationship between my uncle's child and myself is that of cousins. A cousin is a relative who shares a common ancestor but is not a sibling or a direct descendant. In this case, my uncle's son or daughter is the child of my uncle, who is a sibling of one of my parents. Therefore, we are cousins.

    • C.

      Use the chairs provided

    Correct Answer
    A. Touch wounds or medical equipment
    Explanation
    It is important not to touch wounds or medical equipment at the hospital to prevent the spread of germs and potential infections. Touching wounds can introduce bacteria and increase the risk of complications for the patient. Similarly, touching medical equipment can contaminate it and compromise its effectiveness. Following proper hygiene practices and respecting the hospital's regulations can contribute to a safe and healthy environment for everyone.

    Patients who can't walk use a __________________ to help them move.

      Blanket

    • B.

      CT scanner

    • C.

      Wheel chair

    Correct Answer
    C. Wheel chair
    Explanation
    Patients who are unable to walk often require assistance in order to move. A wheelchair is a device specifically designed to help individuals who cannot walk to move around. It provides support and mobility, allowing patients to maintain their independence and participate in daily activities. A blanket is not designed for this purpose, and a CT scanner is a medical imaging device used for diagnostic purposes, not for assisting with mobility. Therefore, the correct answer is wheelchair.

    • B.

      Where

      What

    Correct Answer
    B. Where
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the location where the patient lives. The word "where" is used to inquire about a place or location. Therefore, the correct answer is "where."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Write the correct form of (there's/there're):__________________ a physician's area next to the nurses' station?

    Correct Answer
    Is there
    Explanation
    The correct form of "there's/there're" in this sentence is "Is there." This is because the sentence is asking if there is a physician's area next to the nurses' station. The verb "is" is used to agree with the singular noun "physician's area."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Write the correct form of (there's/there're):​I don't think ____________________ a coffee shop on this floor.

    Correct Answer
    there is
    Explanation
    The correct form of "there's/there're" in this sentence is "there is". This is because the sentence is referring to a singular coffee shop on a specific floor, suggesting that only one coffee shop exists on that floor. Therefore, "there is" is the appropriate form to use.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Write the correct form of (there's/there're):​______________________ any clean blankets in Mrs. Watford's room?

    Correct Answer
    Are there
    Explanation
    The correct form of "there's/there're" in this sentence is "Are there." This is because the question is asking about the existence of multiple clean blankets in Mrs. Watford's room. "Are" is used to indicate a question and "there" is used to refer to the existence of something. Therefore, "Are there" is the appropriate form to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Choose the word that doesn't belong to: hospital facilities for visitors

    • A.

      Bank

    • B.

      Coffee shop

    • C.

      Appointment

    • D.

      News stand

    • E.

      Restaurant

    Correct Answer
    C. Appointment
    Explanation
    The word "appointment" does not belong to the group because it does not refer to a physical location or facility like the other words do. "Bank," "coffee shop," "news stand," and "restaurant" all represent places that can be found within a hospital, providing services or amenities for visitors. However, an "appointment" is not a physical facility but rather a scheduled meeting or arrangement.

    Rate this question:

    Choose the word that doesn't belong to:   symptoms

    • A.

      Mumps

    • B.

      Cough

    • C.

      Nausea

    • D.

      Swollen glands

    • E.

      Stomachache

    A. Mumps
    Explanation
    The word "mumps" doesn't belong because it is a specific illness, while the other words are general symptoms that can be associated with various illnesses.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Choose the word that doesn't belong to:   blood sample

    • A.

      Antiseptic wipe

    • B.

      Cotton ball

    • C.

      CT scanner

    • D.

      Needle

    • E.

      Specimen tube

    Correct Answer
    C. CT scanner
    Explanation
    The word "CT scanner" does not belong because it is not directly related to the concept of a blood sample. The other options - antiseptic wipe, cotton ball, needle, and specimen tube - are all commonly associated with the process of collecting or analyzing a blood sample. The CT scanner, on the other hand, is a medical imaging device used for creating detailed images of the inside of the body, and is not typically used in the context of collecting blood samples.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Choose the word that doesn't belong to:   patient detail

      Surname

    • C.

      DOB

    • D.

      Occupation

    • E.

      Symptoms

    Correct Answer
    E. Symptoms
    Explanation
    The word "symptoms" doesn't belong because it is the only word that doesn't pertain to personal information or characteristics of a patient. The other words, such as GP, surname, DOB, and occupation, are all related to identifying and understanding a patient's background and medical history. Symptoms, on the other hand, refer to the physical or psychological manifestations of an illness or condition, which is not directly related to personal details.

  • 16. 

    A good nurse should be caring and impolite to patients.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A good nurse should be caring and polite to patients. Being caring means showing empathy, compassion, and concern for the well-being of patients. Being impolite would go against the principles of providing quality healthcare and maintaining a positive patient-provider relationship. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A tympanic thermometer is indeed used via the patient's ears. This type of thermometer measures the temperature by detecting the infrared heat waves emitted by the eardrum and the surrounding tissues. It is a quick and non-invasive method of measuring body temperature, making it a popular choice in medical settings.

    Nurses use the antiseptic wipe to fill in the tube with blood.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Nurses do not use antiseptic wipes to fill in the tube with blood. Antiseptic wipes are typically used to clean the skin before a procedure or to disinfect surfaces, but they are not used to fill tubes with blood.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The patient's gender means the patient is either married or single.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement in the question is incorrect. The patient's gender does not determine whether they are married or single. Gender and marital status are two separate characteristics that are not dependent on each other. Therefore, the correct answer is false.
