Redness and warmth-rationale: warmth and redness are normal signs of an inflammatory response. yellow drainage may indicate an infectious process. the nurse would expect some redness not pallor at the suture edges. brown exudate is a sign of an infected wound.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: comprehensionreference: taylor, c., et al. fundamentals of nursing: the art and science of nursing care, 6th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2008, p. 1192.
