Confused about CNA written exam practice question.

  1. Hi! Can someone explain the logic behind the correct answer being D!?


    All of the following situations are examples of abuse and neglect EXCEPT...

    A . Restraining a client according to a physician's order.
    B . Leaving a client alone in a bathtub.
    C . Threatening to withhold a client's meals.
    D. Leaving a client in a wet and soiled bed.

    I picked A but the answer sheet says the correct answer is D.

    It should be A. Maybe they made a mistake? I'd bring this to your instructors attention.

    Well, I already finished the course last week, but I did send it to their company Facebook page and sent an inquiring email to the folks who are in charge of testing and putting out the official practice tests. I was positive it was A, too. Cause else everything is abuse/neglect and leaving someone in wet bedding is such a case of neglect and abuse! But I did get a 94% on the practice test cause I counted that as a correct answer. I'm preparing myself for the big test this summer. Written test I'm not too concerned with so I'm turning my attention mostly to practicing the skills. I wonder what five skills I'll get. I know it's like three small and two long and you need to pass every skill and you need an 87% or above to pass the written part.

    The answer should most definitely be "A" See here: http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/069912.pdf
