Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    It's best to perform all your care on all your clients first, then sit down to document everything all at once.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Performing all care on all clients before documenting everything all at once is not the best approach. It is important to document care in real-time or as soon as possible to ensure accuracy and avoid missing any important details. Waiting to document everything at once can lead to errors, omissions, and potential legal issues. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • B.

      False

  • 3. 

    If your client refuses care, you should not document anything in the chart.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is important to document any refusal of care by a client in the chart. This documentation is necessary to ensure that there is a record of the client's decision and to protect the healthcare provider legally. It also helps to maintain accurate and comprehensive medical records, which are essential for providing continuity of care and for future reference. Failing to document a refusal of care can lead to misunderstandings, potential liability issues, and compromised patient safety. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that nothing should be documented in the chart if a client refuses care.

  • 4. 

    After making an oral report, you should document the name and title of the person you reported to (if documentation is part of your job description).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    After making an oral report, it is important to document the name and title of the person you reported to if documentation is part of your job description. This helps to maintain a record of the communication and ensures accountability. By documenting this information, it becomes easier to refer back to it in the future and track the progress or actions taken based on the report. It also helps to establish a clear chain of command and communication within the organization.

  • 5. 

    Your client tells you, "I'm sick of living in pain like this," you should report:

    • A.

      "Client is suicidal."

    • B.

      "Client needs pain medication but the nurse is not available."

    • C.

      "Client reports, 'I'm sick of living in pain like this.'"

    • D.

      "Client reports feeling sick from all the pain."

    Correct Answer
    C. "Client reports, 'I'm sick of living in pain like this.'"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Client reports, 'I'm sick of living in pain like this.'" This answer accurately reflects the client's statement and conveys their frustration with living in pain. It does not make any assumptions about the client's mental state or make any recommendations for pain medication or nurse availability.

    If you accidentally chart on the wrong client, you should use "white-out" to cover the documentation, then immediately chart in the right chart.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using "white-out" to cover documentation in a client's chart is not an appropriate solution if a mistake is made. It is important to maintain accurate and transparent documentation in a client's chart. If a mistake is made, it should be crossed out with a single line, initialed, and the correct information should be charted. Using correction fluid or "white-out" can raise concerns about tampering with the documentation and compromise the integrity of the client's chart. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    An example of an objective observation is: "Temp. 99.6, pulse 74, resp. 16."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An objective observation is a factual and unbiased statement that is based on direct evidence and can be measured or observed by anyone. In the given example, the observation of temperature, pulse rate, and respiration rate are all objective because they are specific measurements that can be verified and replicated by different individuals. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Keeping documentation confidential in a Home Health setting is not as important as other settings because most people in the home are family or friends.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Keeping documentation confidential in a Home Health setting is just as important as in other settings. While it may be true that most people in the home are family or friends, it is still necessary to maintain confidentiality to protect the privacy and sensitive information of the individuals receiving home health services. This includes medical records, personal information, and any other confidential documentation that may be involved in the care provided. Failure to maintain confidentiality can lead to breaches of privacy and potential legal consequences. Therefore, the statement that it is not as important to keep documentation confidential in a Home Health setting is false.

    It is never okay to document care before you give it, even if you do the same thing every day.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Documenting care before it is given is not acceptable because it goes against the principles of accurate and reliable documentation. By documenting care before it is provided, there is a risk of misrepresenting the actual care provided, which can lead to errors in patient records and potential harm to the patient. It is important to document care accurately and in a timely manner to ensure the continuity and quality of patient care.
