What is the best nursing intervention at this time? If a client begins to experience alcoholic hallucinosis.
A. Keeping the client restrained in bed B. Checking the client s blood pressure every 15 minutes and offering juices C. Providing a quiet environment and administering medication as needed and prescribed D. Restraining the client and measuring blood pressure every 30 minutes
C is the best answer to this question. What the client needs right now is a more quiet environment so that the patient will start to relax. At the same time, some depressants would need to be administered to the patient. It is important that just the right amount will be given so that the patient will not get hurt in the process.
There is no need to restrain the patient as long as the patient is not harming himself or harming other people in the process. There are also some patients who may only get agitated more when they become restrained. It is also not ideal for checking the patient’s blood pressure very often because this will only disrupt the patient’s rest.
