The nurse should teach that which sexual practice is the riskiest? A Anal intercourse is the riskiest sexual practice because the fragile anal tissue can tear, creating a portal of entry for human immune deficiency virus. The nurse providing direct client care uses specific practices to reduce the chance of acquiring infection with human immune deficiency virus HIV from clients.

Which practice is most effective? Consistent use of Standard Precautions b. Double-gloving before body fluid exposure c. Wearing a mask within 3 feet of the client ANS: Double-gloving is not necessary.

Wearing a mask within 3 feet of the client is part of Airborne Precautions and is not necessary with every client contact. Safe and Effective Care Environment: Safety and Infection Control. A client with human immune deficiency virus is admitted to the hospital with fever, night sweats, and severe cough.

What action should the nurse take first? Initiate Droplet Precautions for the client. Place the client under Airborne Precautions. Use Standard Precautions to provide care. The nurse should first place the client on Airborne Precautions to prevent the spread of TB if it is present. Droplet Precautions are not used for TB.

Standard Precautions are not adequate in this case. The test is negative and the client states Whew! I was really worried about that result. What action by the nurse is most important? Assess the clients sexual activity and patterns.

Express happiness over the test result. Remind the client about safer sex practices. Tell the client to be retested in 3 months. This period of time is known as the window period and can last up to 36 months. The nurse needs to assess the clients sexual behavior further to determine the proper response. The other actions are not the most important, but discussing safer sex practices is always appropriate.

Reduction of Risk Potential. A client with human immune deficiency virus HIV has had a sudden decline in status with a large increase in viral load. Ask the client about travel to any foreign countries. Assess the client for adherence to the drug regimen. Determine if the client has any new sexual partners. Request information about new living quarters or pets.

B Adherence to the complex drug regimen needed for HIV treatment can be daunting. Since this clients viral load has increased dramatically, the nurse should first assess this factor. After this, the other assessments may or may not be needed. A client is hospitalized with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia. The client reports shortness of breath with activity and extreme fatigue. What intervention is best to promote comfort?

Perform most activities for the client. Increase the clients oxygen during activity. Pace activities, allowing for adequate rest.

D This client has two major reasons for fatigue: The nurse should not do everything for the client but rather let the client do as much as possible within limits and allow for adequate rest in between.

Sleeping medications may be needed but not as the first step, and only with caution. Increasing oxygen during activities may or may not be warranted, but first the nurse must try pacing the clients activity. Basic Care and Comfort. A client with HIV wasting syndrome has inadequate nutrition. What assessment finding by the nurse best indicates that goals have been met for this client problem? Chooses high-protein food b. Has decreased oral discomfort c.

D The weight gain is the best indicator that goals for this client problem have been met because it demonstrates that the client not only is eating well but also is able to absorb the nutrients. A client with acquired immune deficiency syndrome is hospitalized and has weeping Kaposis sarcoma lesions.

The nurse dresses them with sterile gauze. When changing these dressings, which action is most important? Adhering to Standard Precautions b.

Assessing tolerance to dressing changes c. Performing hand hygiene before and after care d. Disposing of soiled dressings properly ANS: D All of the actions are important, but due to the infectious nature of this illness, ensuring proper disposal of soiled dressings is vital.

A client has a primary selective immunoglobulin A deficiency. The nurse should prepare the client for self-management by teaching what principle of medical management? Infusions will be scheduled every 3 to 4 weeks. Treatment is aimed at treating specific infections. Unfortunately, there is no effective treatment. You will need many immunoglobulin A infusions. B Treatment for this disorder is vigorous management of infection, not infusion of exogenous immunoglobulins.

The other responses are inaccurate. Immune disorders patient education MSC: An HIV-positive client is admitted to the hospital with Toxoplasma gondii infection.

Which action by the nurse is most appropriate? Place the client on Airborne Precautions. Place the client on Droplet Precautions. Use Standard Precautions consistently. D Toxoplasma gondii infection is an opportunistic infection that poses no threat to immunocompetent health care workers.

Use of Standard Precautions is sufficient to care for this client. A client has just been diagnosed with human immune deficiency virus HIV. The client is distraught and does not know what to do. What intervention by the nurse is best? Assess the client for support systems. Determine if a clergy member would help.

Explain legal requirements to tell sex partners. Offer to tell the family for the client. A This client needs the assistance of support systems. The nurse should help the client identify them and what role they can play in supporting him or her. A clergy member may or may not be welcome. Legal requirements about disclosing HIV status vary by state.

Telling the family for the client is enabling, and the client may not want the family to know. A nurse works on a unit that has admitted its first client with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The nurse overhears other staff members talking about the AIDS guy and wondering how the client contracted the disease.

Confront the staff members about unethical behavior. Ignore the behavior; they will stop on their own soon. Report the behavior to the units nursing management. Tell the client that other staff members are talking about him or her. A The professional nurse should be able to confront unethical behavior assertively.

The staff should not be talking about clients unless they have a need to do so for client care. Ignoring the behavior may be more comfortable, but the nurse is abdicating responsibility.

The behavior may need to be reported, but not as a first step. Telling the client that others are talking about him or her does not accomplish anything. Communication and Documentation NOT: A client has been hospitalized with an opportunistic infection secondary to acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The clients partner is listed as the emergency contact, but the clients mother insists that she should be listed instead.

Contact the social worker to assist the client with advance directives. Ignore the mother; the client does not want her to be involved. Let the client know, gently, that nurses cannot be involved in these disputes. Tell the client that, legally, the mother is the emergency contact. A The client should make his or her wishes known and formalize them through advance directives. The nurse should help the client by contacting someone to help with this process.

Ignoring the mother or telling the client that nurses cannot be involved does not help the situation. Legal statutes vary by state; as more states recognize gay marriage, this issue will continue to evolve. A client with human immune deficiency virus infection is hospitalized for an unrelated condition, and several medications are prescribed in addition to the regimen already being used.

Consult with the pharmacy about drug interactions. Ensure that the client understands the new medications. Give the new drugs without considering the old ones. Schedule all medications at standard times.

The nurse should consult with a pharmacist about possible interactions.
