Question 4 of 10
After being hit by a car, a patient is brought to the emergency department by emergency medical services (EMS). The patient’s name is unknown, and the patient has suffered a serious head injury and several fractures and is unconscious. There is a need for an emergency craniotomy. Which is the best action with regard to informed consent for the surgical procedure?Correct
In general, there are two situations in which an adult patient’s informed consent is not required. One is when there is an emergency and delaying treatment for the purpose of obtaining informed consent would result in the patient being injured or dead. The second is when the right to give informed consent is waived by the patient.
Question 5 of 10
After a fall, the nurse had just helped a patient return to bed. The health care provider and the nurse evaluated the patient and determined that the patient was not injured. After completing the incident report, which action should the nurse take next?Correct
The nurse must frequently reassess the patient after a patient’s fall because potential complications do not always appear immediately after the fall. The patient’s fall should be treated as private information and shared on a “need to know” basis.
Question 6 of 10
The nurse arrives at work and is instructed to report (float) for the day to the intensive care unit (ICU) because the ICU is understaffed and needs extra nurses to care for the patients. The nurse never worked in the ICU at all. Should the nurse take the best action?Correct
Floating is an acceptable practice that hospitals use to solve problems with understaffing. Legally, the nurse can not refuse to float unless a union contract guarantees that nurses can only work in a certain area or that the nurse can demonstrate a lack of knowledge for the performance of assigned duties.
Question 7 of 10
A nursing instructor delivers a lecture on the issue of patient rights to nursing students and asks a nursing student to identify a situation that represents an example of patient privacy invasion. Which situation indicates an understanding of a violation of this customer’s right is identified by the student?Correct
Privacy invasion occurs through unreasonable intrusion into the private affairs of an individual. An example of battery is the execution of a procedure without consent. Threatening to give a patient a drug is assault. It constitutes false imprisonment to tell the patient that the patient can not leave the hospital.
Question 8 of 10
Members of the nursing staff sit in the lounge taking their morning break. An unlicensed assistant (UAP) tells the group that she believes that the secretary of the unit has acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and continues to tell the nursing staff that her husband, who is supposed to be a drug addict, probably contracted the disease from the secretary. The registered nurse should inform the UAP that making this accusation has violated which legal tort?Correct
Defamation is a false communication or a careless disregard for the truth that causes damage to someone’s reputation, either in writing (libel) or verbally (slander).
Question 9 of 10
With regard to a new medication prescription, the nurse calls the health care provider (HCP) because the dosage prescribed is higher than the recommended dosage. The nurse is unable to locate the HCP, and it is due to administering the medication. Which action should be taken by the nurse?Correct
If the HCP writes a prescription that requires clarification, the nurse’s responsibility is to contact the HCP. Under no circumstances should the nurse proceed to carry out the prescription until obtaining clarification.
