Question 1 0 out of 2 points Ms. Green is an 85-year-old female patient with dementia who presents to the emergency department with her daughter because of a change in function. Which pain assessment scale would be the best choice? Response Feedback: The Checklist for Nonverbal Pain Indicators is for nonverbal adults. The Oucher and Wong/Baker Rating Scales are pediatric scales. The CRIES Scale is for infants. Question 2 2 out of 2 points Your 85-year-old patient is complaining of right knee pain. She has a history of osteoarthritis for which she is given antiinflammatory medication. To assess her right knee pain, you should ask her if: Response Feedback: It is most appropriate to ask a present tense evaluation question, such as whether the patient took her pain medication; the question should be simply worded without the addition of multiple factors to consider. You should refrain from asking older patients to compare past with present symptoms, because recollection may be uncertain and recollection of past pain is sometimes not readily achieved. Systematic evaluation of the right knee should be completed before any additional symptoms are evaluated. Knowing that the pain gets better when she sits does not help assess the right knee pain. Question 3 2 out of 2 points The Joint Commission (TJC, formerly The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations [JCAHO]) requires that: Response Feedback: TJC requires pain assessment on all admissions, repeated assessments for pain regardless of an initial complaint or surgical experience, and repeated intensity documentation of the course of pain relief for all patients.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
