Answer:

Correct Answer: B. The nurse knows that patients with Meniere's disease can have sudden attacks of vertigo so it is important that the nursing assistant help the patient out of bed and while ambulating due to the risk of falls. Raising the side rails of the bed is considered a restraint and should be avoided. Hand hygiene should be taught to all patients, and patients with Meniere's disease do not have specific food restrictions.
