Obtain a glucose level on a client admitted with diabetes mellitus

A licensed practical nurse may obtain a finger-stick glucose on a client with diabetes mellitus. A licensed practical nurse may not assess a client for metabolic acidosis, evaluate blood gases on a client with respiratory alkalosis, or perform a neurological assessment on a client suspected of hypocalcemia.
