A patient who suffers from paranoia has a mental problem that may make them get upset for several reasons. They may have delusions where they are seeing or hearing things that aren’t there. They may also think of themselves as very important and want to know why others are not noticing what they are doing or hearing.
A nurse will want to gain the confidence and trust from a patient who suffers from paranoid personality disorder who has been admitted to a psychiatric facility.
The words that a nurse chooses when speaking to the patient should be carefully considered in order to best establish rapport and encourage the client. The best line to speak to the patient would most likely be “I get upset once in a while, too.”
\"i get upset once in a while, too.\"-sharing a benign, nonthreatening, personal fact or feeling helps the nurse establish rapport and encourages the client to confide in the nurse. the nurse cant know how the client feels. telling the client otherwise, as in option b, would justify the suspicions of a paranoid client; furthermore, the client relies on the nurse to interpret reality. option c is incorrect because it focuses on the nurses feelings, not the clients. option d wouldnt help establish rapport or encourage the client to confide in the nurse
