Question 20 1 out of 1 points A nurse is admitting a Mexican woman to the hospital who cannot speak or understand English. The patient is alone, and there is no interpreter available. When trying to communicate with the patient the nurse will Response Feedback: If an interpreter or translator is not available, the nurse should look at the patient, speak slowly, and use nonverbal communication to help the patient understand the message. Speaking loudly and using exaggerated mouth movements only serve to intimidate or belittle the patient and should not be done. Question 21 1 out of 1 points A physician has ordered subcutaneous injections of morphine, a narcotic, every 4 hours as needed for pain for a motor vehicle accident victim. The nurse is aware that there is a high abuse potential for this drug and that it is categorized as a Response Feedback: Narcotics such as morphine are considered C-II drugs because of the high abuse potential with severe dependence liability. C-I drugs have high abuse potential and are not accepted for medical use. C-III drugs have a lesser abuse potential than C-II drugs and an accepted medical use. C-IV drugs have a low abuse potential and limited dependence liability. Question 22 1 out of 1 points A nurse who provides care in a long-term care facility is documenting a new resident's medication regimen on the resident's intake admission. The nurse is documenting the generic, rather than proprietary, names of the resident's current drugs because Response Feedback: The use of generic instead of proprietary (trade) names mitigates some of the potential for confusion that exists due to similar trade names between different drugs. Trade names do not vary from state to state and use of these names in documentation is not legally restricted. There are not typically differences in the use of drugs that are based solely on generic or proprietary name. Question 23 1 out of 1 points A patient comes to primary clinic for strep throat. A throat swab culture is sent to lab. What information is required for the nurse practitioner to disclose on lab transmittal? Question 24 1 out of 1 points A 46-year-old white American has been prescribed a drug that binds to acid glycoproteins. The nurse understands that white Americans usually receive
Response Feedback: White Americans have been found to have more acid glycoproteins than other ethnic groups. Therefore, when they take drugs that bind to these proteins, they have lower amounts of free or active drug than when the same dose is given to someone of another ethnic group. Since the patient is a white American, he has been prescribed a higher-than-normal dose of the drug that binds to the acid glycoprotein. Question 25 1 out of 1 points Drugs have a high potential for abuse. There is no routine therapeutic use for these drugs and they are not available for regular use. They may be obtained for “investigational use only” by applying to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Examples include heroin and LSD. Which scheduled drug is this?
