Question:

A nurse is caring for a 15-year-old girl who is recovering from an appendectomy. The nurse is trying to assess the patients level of pain. Which question from the nurse would be most appropriate for determining the intensity of pain the patient is experiencing?

Answer:

C. “How would you rate your pain on a scale of 0-10?”

Rationale: 

The intensity of a patients pain describes how much pain the patient feels, whether it is a little or a lot. The nurse can best assess intensity of the patients pain by asking her to rate the amount of pain she is experiencing on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being “no pain” and 10 being “the worst pain.”

Question:

A nurse working in the newborn nursery is caring for an infant who was born 3 hours ago. The infant’s axillary temperature is 97.0F and the nurse notes that his respiratory rate is 60/minute. Which action of the nurse is most appropriate?

Answer:

B.  Increase the heat on the radiant warmer and place a hat on the baby

Rationale: 

The infant in the above situation is demonstrating signs of hypothermia, as manifested by the decreased temperature and increased respiratory rate. The nurse should increase the patients temperature by placing the baby in a radiant warmer and putting a hat on the head, which is otherwise the main source of heat loss.

Question:

Answer:

A.  Tell the patient to stand up or change positions slowly

Cardiac changes associated with aging lead to orthostatic hypotension, in which the patient may experience a drop in blood pressure upon standing. The patient should be encouraged to turn and change positions slowly to avoid becoming lightheaded or dizzy due to the blood pressure decrease upon standing.
