Discussing patient information only with staff who have a job-related need to know ensures that information is only shared on a need-to-know basis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Nurses complete two screens to identify patients with certain safety risks, which are suicide and falls. These screens are designed to assess the likelihood of a patient being at risk for either of these safety concerns. By completing these screens, nurses can gather important information about the patient's mental health and risk of self-harm, as well as their risk of falling and sustaining injuries. This allows nurses to implement appropriate interventions and precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of these patients.

    While a patient is in restraints, it is important to regularly check their circulation to ensure that blood flow is not restricted and to prevent any complications. Checking elimination is necessary to ensure that the patient is able to urinate or have bowel movements properly. Nutrition should be monitored to ensure that the patient is receiving adequate nourishment during their time in restraints. Lastly, hygiene needs should be checked to ensure that the patient is clean and comfortable. Monitoring these physical needs every 2 hours helps to maintain the patient's overall well-being and prevent any potential health issues.

This means that the nurse will evaluate the impact of the pain interventions within a timeframe of one hour to determine if they have been successful in relieving the patient's pain. The assessment may be done sooner or later depending on the specific circumstances and the type of intervention used, but one hour is the general guideline.
