    A nurse is caring for a client who is 1 hr postpartum and observes a large amount of lochia rubra and several small clots on the client's perineal pad. The fundus is midline and firm at the umbilicus. Which of the following actions should the nurse take?
A.    Document the findings and continue to monitor the client.


Rationale: These are expected findings. At 1 hr postpartum, lochia rubra should be intermittent and associated with uterine contractions. The volume of lochia resembles that of a heavy menstrual period. Small clots are common. The nurse should document the findings and continue to monitor the client.
B.    Notify the client‟s provider.

Rationale: These are expected findings, so there is no need to notify the provider.

C.    Increase the frequency of fundal massage.


Rationale: These are expected findings and the fundus is already firm. Increasing the frequency of fundal massage is not indicated at this time.
D.    Encourage the client to empty her bladder.


Rationale: These are expected findings, and the fundus is firm at the midline. If the fundus was deviated, this would be an indication of a distended bladder and the client should be encouraged to void to prevent uterine atony.
 

    A nurse is caring for a client who is at 36 weeks of gestation and who has a suspected placenta previa. Which of the following findings support this diagnosis?
A.    Painless red vaginal bleeding

    
Rationale: Placenta previa is a condition of pregnancy when the placenta implants in the lower part of the uterus, partly or completely obstructing the cervical os (outlet to the vagina). Bright red, painless vaginal bleeding occurs in the second and third trimester.
B.    Increasing abdominal pain with a nonrelaxed uterus


Rationale: Abruptio placenta is separation of the placenta from the site of uterine implantation before delivery of the fetus. When the placenta separates prematurely, there is internal bleeding, which is painful, and the uterus is nonrelaxed or becomes rigid as the separation advances.
C.    Abdominal pain with scant red vaginal bleeding


Rationale: Placenta previa involves minimal to severe bright red vaginal bleeding in the absence of abdominal pain.
D.    Intermittent abdominal pain following passage of bloody mucus


Rationale: Intermittent abdominal pain following passage of bloody mucus is a description of normal labor. The passage of bloody mucus represents the loss of the cervical mucous plug, also referred to
 

as the "bloody show."

    A nurse is caring for a newborn immediately following birth. After assuring a patent airway, what is the priority nursing action?
A.    Administer vitamin K.


Rationale: Administration of vitamin K is important, but it can be delayed until the newborn is held by the mother and is breastfed. There is another, more important nursing action.

B.    Dry the skin.


Rationale: The newborn should be thoroughly dried, covered with a warm blanket, placed on the mother‟s abdomen, and a cap applied to the newborn‟s head to prevent cold stress. The newborn responds to the cooler environment by increasing his respiratory rate, which can lead to
     respiratory distress. Based on Maslow‟s hierarchy of needs, this is the most important nursing     action after securing the airway.
C.    Administer eye prophylaxis.


Rationale: Administration of eye prophylaxis should occur within the first hour after birth. There is another, more important nursing action.
D.    Place an identification bracelet.


Rationale: Correct identification of the newborn is important, but it can be delayed, as long as it is
completed prior to the mother and newborn leaving the delivery room. There is another, more important nursing action.
