Provide passive ROM exercises and encourage fluid intake

A client who has a serum calcium of 13 mg/dl has hypercalcemia. Normal serum calcium is 9 to 11 mg/dl. Fluid intake promotes renal excretion of excess calcium. ROM exercises promote reabsorption of calcium into bone. Placing a tracheostomy at the bedside is a nursing intervention for hypocalcemia. Although calcium gluconate may be administered in hypocalcemia, it is never administered IM.
