A 12-year-old client is admitted to the hospital. The physician ordered Dilantin
to the client. In administering IV phenytoin (Dilantin) to a child, the nurse
would be most correct in mixing it with:
Heparinized normal saline
5% dextrose in water
Lactated Ringer’s solution
The nurse is caring to a client who is hypotensive. Following a large
hematemesis, how should the nurse position the client?
Feet and legs elevated 20 degrees, trunk horizontal, head on small pillow
Low Fowler’s with knees gatched at 30 degrees
Supine with the head turned to the left
Bed sloped at a 45 degree angle with the head lowest and the legs highest
