A nurse is developing a plan of care for a client who reports difficulty sleeping. Which initial intervention does the nurse include in the plan of care? 4.4.ID: 283581972
A client is found to have ulcerative colitis, and the nurse provides instructions to the client about the diet that he should follow while the disease is in remission. Which menu selection by the client indicates to the nurse that the client understands the instructions? Milk Incorrect Cabbage Boiled potatoes Correct Coffee with cream Rationale:During remission, the client must avoid intestinal stimulants such as alcohol, caffeinated beverages, high-fat foods, gas-forming foods, milk products, and foods, such as raw fruits and some vegetables, that are very high in fiber. Vitamins and iron supplements may be prescribed.Test-Taking Strategy:Use the process of elimination. First eliminate coffee with cream and milk, knowing that coffee is a stimulant and milk may aggravate diarrhea. Remember, as you select from the remaining options, that a diet with low fiber minimizes irritation of ulcerated bowel tissue. Review dietary measures for the client with ulcerative colitis if you had difficulty with this question.Level of Cognitive Ability:EvaluatingClient Needs:Physiological Integrity Integrated Process:Nursing Process/EvaluationContent Area:Adult Health/GastrointestinalReferences:Black, J., & Hawks, J.
