[color=#990000]question... i dont know if anyone has came across this before in the kaplan review book. on pg 85 the question says : a client with a hx of bipolar disorder is admitted to the psych hospital. she was found by the police attempting to climb onto the wing of a plane at the airport... her husband states she hasn't eaten or slept in 2 days and suspects she quit taking her meds. on admission, the nurse places highest priority on which of her needs? they leave you with 2 that dont make any sense... and then 2. provide the pt with a safe environment, and 3. arranging for food and rest for the patient... well according to kaplan they say that food/rest comes before safety, but wouldn't you first want to get the patient out of danger and make sure they are safe and then go ahead with food, fluids, rest, etc?
im getting more and more confused as the days draw near! :/
