Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
1. You receive a call at the pediatrician’s office from a woman with a 6-month-old daughter who has been experiencing vomiting and diarrhea for the past 24 hours. Her daughter has an axillary temperature of 99.2º F. The mother says that her child has been irritable and cannot keep anything down. She asks if she should bring her baby in for a visit or wait and see if the vomiting subsides. How should the nurse respond?
2. A 16-year-old enters the clinic complaining that she has gained 6 pounds in the last 4 weeks, even though her diet is unchanged. Her pregnancy test comes back positive and the midwife informs the nurse that the patient is 4 months pregnant. What teaching guidelines about nutrition should the nurse review with the patient?
