° 36. ID: 9476948358 A client undergoing chemotherapy is found to have an extremely low white blood cell count, and neutropenic precautions, including a low-bacteria diet, are immediately instituted. Which of these food items will the client be allowed to consume? Select all that apply. A Fresh apple B Raw celery C Italian bread Correct D Tossed salad E Baked chicken Correct F Well-cooked cheeseburger Correct ° Rationale: An extremely low white blood cell count puts the client at risk for infection, necessitating the implementation of a low-bacteria diet. The client must avoid fresh fruits and vegetables, which may harbor microorganisms that could cause infection, and ensure that meat is thoroughly cooked. Italian bread, baked chicken, and a well-done cheeseburger are all acceptable foods for the client. ° Test-Taking Strategy: Focus on the subject of the question, a low-bacteria diet. Read each option carefully and think about the foods that harbor bacteria. Recalling that fresh fruits and vegetables are restricted in a low-bacteria diet will help you select the correct items. Review interventions for the client on a low- bacteria diet if you had difficulty with this question. ° Reference: Ignatavicius, D., & Workman, M. (2010).

D Removing any visible materials from the nose and mouth Correct E Inducing vomiting if a household cleaner has been ingested F Assessing the client’s airway patency, breathing, and circulation Correct ° Rationale: In the event of accidental poisoning, the poison center is called before any attempt at interventions is made. Additional interventions in an accidental poisoning include assessing the client’s airway patency, breathing, and circulation; removing any visible materials from the nose and mouth to terminate exposure; determining the type and amount of substance ingested, if possible, to identify an antidote; saving vomitus for laboratory analysis, which may aid further treatment; and positioning the victim with the head to the side to prevent aspiration of vomitus and help keep the airway open. Because of the risk of aspiration, vomiting is never induced in an unconscious client or in a client who is experiencing seizures. Additionally, vomiting is not induced if lye, a household cleaner, a hair care product, grease, a petroleum product, or furniture polish has been ingested, because of the risk of internal burns.
