Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Once an individual enters a nursing home, they lose their rights.

Answer: False

2. If a diabetic in a nursing home wants to have a piece of cake against physician's orders, what should the nurse do?

Answer: allow them to have it

If a diabetic desires sugar the staff should encourage diabetic alternatives but, if they continue to insist, it is their right to have the sugar.
3. Residents' rights in nursing homes in the USA are protected at which level?

Answer: Both federal and state

The Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act was passed in 1980, with various amendments since, while individual states also have laws providing additional rights.
4. If a nursing home resident has food left on her face after a meal, is this a violation of her rights?

Answer: Yes

Leaving food on someone's face is a dignity issue.
5. If a man in a nursing home has special dietary needs that conflict with the dinner being offered, which of these should, ideally, happen?

Answer: the kitchen should accommodate his needs

Most nursing homes will accommodate any dietary request: vegetarian, kosher, etc.
6. If a resident in a nursing home doesn't want to take their blood pressure medicine, which of these applies?

Answer: they don't have to

Residents have the right to refuse their medication.
7. If a man in a nursing home wants to rent a pornographic film, what action should the activities director take?

Answer: must provide him with one in a setting where it will not disturb others

8. If a nurse has put an elderly woman's hair in pigtails, and she did not ask for this hairstyle, does this violate her rights?

Answer: Yes: because the woman did not request it

Again this is a dignity issue. Pigtails in particular are usually a hairstyle for children, not for adults.
9. Technically, calling a nursing home resident 'sweetie' or 'honey' is a violation of someone's rights.

Answer: True

Even though these pet names are well meant they can be considered demeaning and so it is once again a dignity issue.
10. If a nursing home resident can no longer eat, in which circumstances can a feeding tube NOT be used?

Answer: any of these
