    True or False? Bladder Management includes complete and intentional control of urinary bladder, and if necessary, use of equipment and/or agents for bladder control. When the patient uses the toilet, even if you're standing by for safety, and s/he does not need a device or medication to control sphincter, nor requires reminders to void,  the level of assistance is Independent.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bladder management refers to the control of the urinary bladder, including the use of equipment or agents if necessary. If a patient can use the toilet without needing any devices or medication to control their sphincter and does not require reminders to void, then they have complete and intentional control of their bladder. In this case, the level of assistance required is independent.

    True or False? If it takes 2 people to assist with the activity, even if one does not physically touch the patient, the level of assistance needed is Total Assistance or a FIM score of 1

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If it takes 2 people to assist with the activity, it means that the patient is unable to perform the activity independently. Even if one person does not physically touch the patient, their presence and assistance are still required. This indicates that the level of assistance needed is total assistance, which corresponds to a FIM score of 1. Therefore, the statement is true.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a patient is able to complete all other lower body dressing tasks without assistance but requires help in applying their TED stockings, it indicates that they have a level of independence in dressing but need supervision or set up for this specific task. Therefore, the FIM score would be Supervision/Set up or 5.
