One week ago, a 12-year-old boy had an anaphylactic response to ampicillin, which he had been taking for an ear infection. The client was cared for in the ICU and was stabilized. Five days after admission, Jake now has oliguria and his serum BUN and creatinine are elevated.
a. Why is the client’s renal system responding this way?
b. His parents are concerned that he will now need dialysis and a kidney transplant. How will you respond?
Isabella, a student nurse, has just started to work in a sexual health clinic part-time where there are a large number of clients who have genital herpes. The clients, both male and female, range in age from 16 to 39 years, have varying levels of education and backgrounds.
a. What features of sexually transmitted diseases would it be important for Isabella to review?
b. Isabella states, “Why don’t these clients just stop having sex and then their conditions wouldn’t be as bad?” How would the nurse who works in the clinic respond to Isabella’s comment?
