    • D.

      < 100 / < 70 mm Hg

    Correct Answer
    A. < 120 / < 80 mm Hg
    Explanation
    The correct answer is < 120 / < 80 mm Hg. This answer represents the average blood pressure in an adult patient. The first number, 120, represents the systolic pressure, which is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and pumps blood. The second number, 80, represents the diastolic pressure, which is the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest between beats. This range is considered to be within the normal range for blood pressure in adults.

    Common areas of increased risk for pressure ulcers include all except:

    • A.

      Elbows

    • B.

      Occiput

    • C.

      Knees

    • D.

      Thighs

    Correct Answer
    D. Thighs
    Explanation
    Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, occur when there is prolonged pressure on the skin, leading to tissue damage. Common areas at increased risk for pressure ulcers are those with bony prominences, where the skin is in direct contact with underlying bones. These areas include the elbows, occiput (back of the head), and knees. However, the thighs are not typically considered high-risk areas for pressure ulcers as they have more muscle and adipose tissue, providing better cushioning and reducing the risk of tissue damage.

  • 15. 

    Factors that will increase the risk of pressure ulcer development in residents are: (select all that apply)

    • A.

      Dry skin

    • B.

      Incontinence

    • C.

      Spasticity

    • D.

      Poor positioning

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Dry skin
    B. Incontinence
    C. Spasticity
    D. Poor positioning
    Explanation
    Dry skin, incontinence, spasticity, and poor positioning are all factors that can increase the risk of pressure ulcer development in residents. Dry skin can make the skin more prone to damage and breakdown. Incontinence can lead to prolonged exposure to moisture, which can weaken the skin and make it more susceptible to pressure ulcers. Spasticity, which is involuntary muscle contractions, can cause friction and shear forces that can damage the skin. Poor positioning, such as prolonged immobility or being in a position that puts excessive pressure on certain areas, can also increase the risk of pressure ulcers.

    • A.

      Bathing

    • B.

      Apply barrier creams

    • C.

      Limit linen to only 2 layers

    • D.

      Place diapers on patient and change every 6 hours

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Bathing
    B. Apply barrier creams
    C. Limit linen to only 2 layers
    Explanation
    The HCT/NA can provide bathing to protect the patient's skin by keeping it clean and free from irritants. Applying barrier creams can create a protective layer on the skin, preventing moisture loss and reducing the risk of skin breakdown. Limiting linen to only 2 layers can help prevent excessive pressure on the skin, reducing the risk of pressure ulcers. However, placing diapers on the patient and changing them every 6 hours may not directly protect the patient's skin, as it does not address other factors that can contribute to skin damage, such as moisture and friction.

    Explanation
    The correct answer indicates that the CNA did not retract the foreskin before cleansing the male patient. This is important because the foreskin covers the head of the penis and needs to be retracted in order to properly clean the area. Failure to do so can lead to inadequate cleansing and potential hygiene issues for the patient. Therefore, further orientation is needed to ensure that the CNA understands the proper procedure for cleansing a male patient.
