CAN YOU ANSWER THIS QUESTION?.

1.The patient told his primary nurse that he feels fainted when he was walking on the hallway with the physical therapy. What will be the appropriate decision for the physical therapist to take?.

A.Advise the patient to look where is going and maintain his balance.

B.Turn the patient over to the nurse to continue with patient.

C.Instruct patient to increase his pace and move fast.

D.The physical therapist should guide the patient to a chair in the hallway and eases him onto the chair to rest.

Correct answer is D.

The PT guiding the patient to a chair in the hallway and helping him to sit and rest is the safest way. A,B,C are incorrect because patient is almost fainting so you should ease the patient to sit on the chair on the hallway to catch his breath. Not to walk fast or look down is wrong.
