During the performance of the Romberg test, the nurse observes that the patient sways slightly. What is the nurses most appropriate action?

Answer Explanation: Slight swaying during the Romberg test is normal, but a loss of balance is abnormal and is considered a positive Romberg test. Slight swaying is not a significant threat to the patients safety. The Rinne test assesses hearing, not balance.
