unrealistic or expensive solution. The supervisor is not directly involved with the problem and should only be consulted if the problem cannot be solved by those involved. Question 15 The nurse is preparing a community education program about preventing hepatitis B infection. Which information should be incorporated into the teaching plan? You Selected: Good personal hygiene habits are most effective at preventing the spread of hepatitis B. Correct response: The use of a condom is advised for sexual intercourse. Explanation: Hepatitis B is spread through exposure to blood or blood products and through high-risk sexual activity. Hepatitis B is considered to be a sexually transmitted disease. High-risk sexual activities include sex with multiple partners, unprotected sex with an infected individual, male homosexual activity, and sexual activity with IV drug users. College students are at high risk for development of hepatitis B and are encouraged to be immunized. Alcohol intake by itself does not predispose an individual to hepatitis B, but it can lead to high-risk behaviors such as unprotected sex. Good personal hygiene alone will not prevent the transmission of hepatitis B. Question 16 The nurse's best explanation for why the severely neutropenic client is placed in reverse isolation is that reverse isolation helps prevent the spread of organisms: You Selected: to the client from sources outside the client's environment. Correct response: to the client from sources outside the client's environment. Explanation: The primary purpose of reverse isolation is to reduce transmission of organisms to the client from sources outside the client's environment. Question 17 The charge nurse is making client care assignments for the evening shift. One of the licensed practical nurses (LPNs) is a new graduate in orientation. Which client would be an appropriate care assignment for this LPN? You Selected: a 5-year-old client with Kawasaki’s disease Correct response: a 72-year-old client with diverticulitis Explanation: The client with diverticulitis will need care that the LPN should be able to provide safely. The client with angina is unstable and requires a registered nurse for continuous assessment. The client receiving chemotherapy treatment requires a registered nurse who is certified in chemotherapy administration. A child with Kawasaki’s disease must be watched closely for cardiac complications, and it would be best to assign the child to an experienced pediatric nurse, not a new graduate. Question 18 Assessment of a primigravida in active labor reveals a cervix dilated to 5 cm and completely effaced, with the fetus at +1 station. The client has indicated that she wants a “natural childbirth” with no analgesia or anesthesia. The client’s husband has been present since their arrival at the birthing unit. The primary care provider enters the room and tells the client that it is time for an epidural anesthetic. The nurse should next : You Selected: tell the primary care provider that the client desires a “natural childbirth.”
