  • Please review question #5 in Safety and Infection Control NCLEX Practice Exam (Set 2: 25 Questions) I chose the correct answer which was cool air dryer and it was marked wrong. But in the rationales it had it correct. Thank you

  • in the first set of questions #16 about doing CPR. your rational for the answer being what it is states “The nurse should use the heel of one hand at the center of the chest, then place the heel of the other hand on top of the first hand and lace fingers together and give 30 compressions that are about 1” to 1½” deep.”

    this is actually incorrect. per the American Heart Association, depth of compression on children is about 2 inches. answer C is more correct than D. just think the answers should be worded better and rationale should be corrected in the depth.

  • Question 19 regarding the child in foster care. Foster Parents do not have permission to sign informed consent on invasive procedures and need Social Worker permission. Most often the hospital/clinic will request a signature from Social Worker. The child is in the CUSTODY of the state and the CARE of the foster parent.
