Just took Kaplan - taking the NCLEX 2 weeks from today. They taught us in Kaplan that padding the side rails is NOT
appropriate for seizure precautions (contradicting what we were taught in school). They said that the correct method for seizure precautions is to place a mattress on the floor next to the bed (to "catch" the patient if he/she falls out of the bed during a seizure!) The instructor said that padded siderails are not to be used since siderails would be considered a restraint, and you never want to restrain a seizing patient. Any thoughts on this? Should I believe this is actually what they want on the NCLEX?
