Documenting the situation and providing support for the victim-rationale: the nurse must carefully and adequately document her assessment of the abused victim. the documentation must include statements from the victim, physical and psychological assessment findings, and observations relative to the abuse situation. the nurse should give the victim information about community resources, social agencies, and legal services to prevent recurrence of physical abuse. a professional nurse isnt qualified to counsel the abuser or the victim. she should refer the abuser and the victim to a professional counselor trained in dealing with domestic violence.client needs category: psychosocial integrityclient needs subcategory: nonecognitive level: analysisreference: weber j., and kelley, j. health assessment in nursing, 3rd ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 898.
