Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Is it informative to you as a therapist to place someone in a novel situation during an ADL eval?

    • A.

      Yes, it allows you to see his/her ability to generalize learned skills

    • B.

      No, it only enhances issues that you are already aware of

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, it allows you to see his/her ability to generalize learned skills
    Explanation
    Placing someone in a novel situation during an ADL eval is informative to a therapist because it allows them to observe the individual's ability to apply and adapt their learned skills to a new and unfamiliar context. This can provide valuable insights into the person's level of independence, problem-solving skills, and ability to generalize their abilities beyond familiar situations. By assessing their performance in a novel situation, the therapist can gain a more comprehensive understanding of the individual's overall functional abilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    For the FIM, if differences in function occur in different environments or at different times of the day, record the lowest score.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when recording the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), it is important to consider any differences in function that occur in different environments or at different times of the day. In order to accurately assess a person's level of independence, it is necessary to record the lowest score observed, as this indicates the individual's lowest level of functioning. By doing so, the FIM provides a comprehensive understanding of the person's abilities and limitations across various contexts.

      2

    • G.

      1

    Correct Answer
    G. 1
    Explanation
    During a Functional Independence Measure (FIM) evaluation, the scoring is based on the level of assistance required by the patient to perform various activities. In this case, if both the evaluator and an aide are required to assist the patient during lower body dressing, it indicates a complete dependence on others for this task. According to the FIM scale, a score of 1 represents total assistance or complete dependence, which is the appropriate level for the given scenario.

    • G.

      1

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. 7
    B. 6
    Explanation
    If a person receives scores of 7 and 6 on the FIM assessment, it means that they have demonstrated a high level of independence in their functional abilities. The FIM is a tool used to measure a person's level of independence in activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and mobility. A score of 7 indicates that the person requires no assistance or supervision, while a score of 6 indicates that they may require some assistance or supervision in certain areas. Therefore, receiving these scores on the FIM assessment would classify the person as "Independent".

    Correct Answer(s)
    F. 2
    G. 1
    Explanation
    In the given scale, the numbers represent scores on the FIM (Functional Independence Measure) assessment. A score of 2 indicates that the individual requires substantial assistance from another person to perform a task, while a score of 1 indicates that the individual is completely dependent on another person to perform a task. Therefore, if someone receives scores of 2 and 1 on the FIM, they are considered to have "Complete Dependence" as they require significant assistance and are unable to perform tasks without help.

    • G.

      1

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. 5
    D. 4
    E. 3
    Explanation
    If a person receives scores of 5, 4, and 3 on the FIM, they are considered "Modified Dependent". This suggests that the individual requires some assistance and supervision with daily activities and may have limitations in their ability to perform certain tasks independently. The scores indicate a moderate level of impairment in functional abilities, indicating the need for support in various areas of daily living.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    How many days after discharge should you collect follow-up FIM data on a patient?

    • A.

      30-60

    • B.

      60-80

    • C.

      80-180

    Correct Answer
    C. 80-180
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 80-180. This is because collecting follow-up FIM data on a patient after discharge is important for monitoring their progress and evaluating the effectiveness of their treatment. Waiting at least 80-180 days allows for a sufficient amount of time to pass, during which the patient can undergo rehabilitation and potentially show improvements in their functional independence. Collecting data within this timeframe provides a more accurate representation of the patient's long-term outcomes.
