Question Of The Day,  Basic Physical Care
Q. The nurse walks into a client's room to administer the 9:00 a.m. medications and notices that the client is in an awkward position in bed. What is the nurse's first action?

A. Ask the client his name.
B. Check the client's name band.
C. Straighten the client's pillow behind his back.
D. Give the client his medications.

Correct Answer: C
Explanation: The nurse should first help the client into a position of comfort even though the primary purpose for entering the room was to administer medication.
