Morphine Sulfate is an opioid anagelsic that is primarily metabolized by the liver. Nurses should monitor blood pressure prior to administration, and hold if systolic BP < 100 mm Hg or 30 mm Hg below baseline. Also, monitor the patient's respiratory rate prior to administration, and reassess pain after administration of morphine. The nurse should continue monitoring for respiratory depression and hypotension frequently up to 24 hours after administration of morphine. Place call light signal close to patient, and accompany patient, if needed, to get out of bed to minimize risk of falls.

Public health nursing focuses on preventive, not curative, services. Public health nursing is all about dissemination of knowledge from nursing specialists to the general public. The hope is that by educating the public on health topics, nurses can empower people to take better care of themselves and make better everyday decisions. This will raise the overall level of public health.

Clearly, public health nursing is different from home-care nursing, so option A can be eliminated. B is also wrong – sometimes public health nursing services are provided free of charge, but this depends on the program and the context.

Calcium gluconate (Kalcinate). When injected into the blood stream, it quickly counteracts the effects of excess magnesium in breathing, heart activity, and the functioning of nerves and muscles. This is only used in extreme cases, since the body is capable of recovering on its own from mild cases of excess magnesium. The other options are not helpful in treating magnesium toxicity. Hydralazine is a vasodilator, which widens blood vessels for a short time and thus helps blood flow more easily.

110 to 130 calories per kg of body weight. This will provide enough chemical energy for the newborn’s body to grow and function. 90 to 100 calories would be slightly too low for a normal baby, and 30 to 40 calories per pound would probably be lethal.

2 ml per feeding is not a measure of caloric intake – calories are a measure of energy, not volume, so they can’t be expressed in milliliters. Instead, the caloric intake has to be measured as a function of the baby’s weight: just like adults, larger babies need more calories to grow and function while smaller babies have a lower need. So 110 to 130 calories per kg of body weight is an appropriate target.
