I am taking my exam in FL. in two days!..overall I feel great and confident..I have few questions that I am not too clear about. I have read over and over the checklist and practice.
My questions are:
On the FL. checklist says: Accurately record percent of food intake on Food Acceptance Form?
I have never seen this type of form, I am guessing that you record the liquids on cc's or ml, for example small cups (coffee, juice or jelly)will be 120cc, bowl of soup (240cc??) or half of cup of coffee will be 60cc..I know you have to use common sense, please correct me if I am wrong. I am planning to add the intake amount in cc's on the FOOD ACCEPTANCE FORM, and write the % of solids, which I would divide the tray in quaters (ea. quater=25%)...Well, as you can see I am too sure on this one.
My question is do you divide the tray in 1/4 (liquids and solids) in order to calculate the total percentage, or do you treat solids and liquids separately...
Second question: based on the FL checklist, it doesn't mention to wear gloves at any point while you do foot care, changing an occupied bed, nail care, do you think the evaluator will mark it as wrong if you wear gloves? I rather be protected than sorry..I am planning to wear gloves on those procedures, what do you think?
....and also says "form a mitt?" while you do partial bath, I have a way to use the washcloth using the 4 corners, do you think it will be marked off if don't form a mitt?
Thank you everyone for your help! if anyone has taking their exam lately, please tell me about your experience...
