Rationale: Morphine can cause respiratory depression if given too much. Also you
should ALWAYS ASSESS the patient first when a med error is performed to make
sure med error doesn‟t put the client‟s health in risk.
Which of the following images shows the correct # of mL the nurse should administer?
(Round the answer to the nearest whole number.)
Click on the syringe that has 8 mL of med.
20 mg x (5mL/12.5mg) = 8 mL
5. A nurse is caring for a 6-year-old child who has a new prescription for cefoxitin 80
mg/kg/day administered intravenously every 6 hour. The child weighs 20 kg. How much
cefoxitin should the nurse administer with each dose? (Round the answer to the nearest
whole number. Use a leading zero if it applies. Do not use a trailing zero.)
So it says each dose for the final answer, but we are given 80 mg/kg/day.
80 x 20 = 1600 / 4 (dose is given every 6 hours a day) =400 mg
Rationale: 80 mg x 20 kg = 1,600 1,600/4 x day (q6h) = 400 mg
