Question 18 1 out of 1 pointsWhich of the following serves to protect the public by ensuring the purity of a drug and its contents?Response Feedback: Federal legislation serves to protect the public from drugs that are impure, toxic, ineffective, or improperly tested prior to marketing. The primary purpose of federal legislation is to ensure safety. The United States Adopted Names Council was established to ensure uniform drug nomenclature. The official name of each drug is published in the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary. The American Pharmaceutical Association does not ensure the safety and purity of drug content but is a professional organization for pharmacists.Question 19 1 out of 1 pointsA nurse is providing care for a 71-year-old woman who was sponsored to emigrate from Mexico to the United States 6 months ago. Earlier this week, the woman slipped while getting off a bus and fractured her hip. How should the woman's nurse best exemplify cultural competence in the care of this patient?Response Feedback: Cultural competence requires maintaining awareness of one's own values and beliefs without letting them have undue influence on those of other backgrounds, demonstrating knowledge and understanding of another's culture, accepting and respecting cultural differences, and considering a patient's culture carefully. This doesnot mean that only Spanish-speaking staff members should provide care, that the nurse must teach the patient about American culture or that the nurse should address the children before the patient.Question 20

The nurse is aware that the lithium dose will likely be given in aResponse Feedback: The patient would likely be prescribed a lower-than-normal dose of lithium to treat the disorder since he is an American. Chinese Americans require lower levels of lithium to achieve a therapeutic response. Different drugs can be metabolized only byspecific liver enzymes, and receptors are custom-designed to accept only certain drugconfigurations. As with enzymes, the number and type of receptors are influenced by genetics. Chinese Americans, and other Chinese people, appear to have a greater number of lithium-activated receptors than other groups.Question 22 1 out of 1 pointsA 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 becauseResponse 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.
