leave a comment »

Here is the weekly question posted on the NCSBN Learning Extension:

Which of these clients, all of whom have the findings of a board-like abdomen, would the nurse suggest that the health care provider examine first?

  1. “An older adult client who stated, “My awful pain in my right side suddenly stopped about three hours ago.”
  2. “A pregnant woman of eight weeks newly diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy.”
  3. “A middle-aged client admitted with diverticulitis and has taken only clear liquids for the past week.”
  4. “A teenager with a history of falling off a bicycle without hitting the handle bars.”

The correct answer is 1 – An older adult client who stated, “my awful pain in my right side suddenly stopped about three hours ago.”
