Document Content and Description Below

Monitoring for Health Problems Question 1 1 / 1 pts A client who has undergone abdominal surgery calls the nurse and reports that she just felt “something give way” in the abdominal incision. ... The nurse checks the incision and notes the presence of wound dehiscence. The nurse should take which immediate action? Contact the health care provider Place the client in a supine position with the legs flat Document the findings Correct Cover the abdominal wound with a sterile dressing moistened with sterile saline solution Rationale: Wound dehiscence is the disruption of a surgical incision or wound. When dehiscence occurs, the nurse immediately places the client in a low Fowler’s position or supine with the knees bent and instructs the client to lie quietly. These actions will minimize protrusion of the underlying tissues. The nurse then covers the wound with a sterile dressing moistened with sterile saline. The health care provider is notified, and the nurse documents the occurrence and the nursing actions that were implemented in response. Test-Taking Strategy: Note the strategic word “immediate.” Visualize this occurrence and recall that the primary concern when wound dehiscence occurs is the protrusion of underlying tissues. This will direct you to the correct option. Review the nursing actions to be taken immediately in the event of wound dehiscence Level of Cognitive Ability: Applying Client Needs: Physiological Integrity Integrated Process: Nursing Process/Implementation Content Area: Perioperative Care Giddens Concepts: Caregiving, Tissue Integrity HESI Concepts: Caregiving, Tissue Integrity Reference: Lewis, S., Dirksen, S., Heitkemper, M., & Bucher, L.
