You are an LPN working as a casual at a long-term care facility. Your employer calls you into work for a care aide shift. During breakfast, your resident suddenly stops breathing and begins to turn blue. What is your responsibility in this emergency?


Please select an option:

  1. Provide the best care you can, given the circumstances and your individual competence.
  2. Provide all the care that the resident requires.
  3. Providing emergency care is optional because you are working as a care aide.
  4. Ask the RN or LPN on duty to call 911 and wait for emergency services to arrive.
