MULTIPLE CHOICE

1. What is the primary purpose of the nursing assessment?
a.
Identifying underlying pathologic conditions
b.
Assisting the physician in identifying medical conditions
c.
Determining the patient’s mental status
d.
Exploring patient responses to health problems

ANS: D
A nursing assessment is done to identify the patient’s response to health problems. During the nursing assessment phase, a comprehensive information base is developed through a physical examination, nursing history, medication history, and professional observation. Identifying underlying pathologic conditions and assisting the physician in identifying medical conditions is not part of the nursing process. Determining the patient’s mental status is one part of the nursing assessment, but it is not the primary purpose.

d.
Nursing diagnoses identify causes related to illness.

Diagnostic statements identify problems a nurse is independently able to treat within the scope of professional practice. Nursing diagnoses vary with the changing condition of the patient. The response patterns are unique to the patient and are not disease specific. Nursing diagnoses describe the patient’s human response pattern.

5. What do the classification systems NIC and NOC provide?
a.
Individualized data banks of treatments related to disease processes
b.
Standardized language for reporting and analyzing nursing care delivery
c.
A measure for cost containment within medical institutions
d.
Specialized interventions for rare diseases

ANS: B
Nursing classification systems such as NIC and NOC are designed to provide a standardized language for reporting and analyzing nursing care delivery that is individualized for each patient. Standardized terminology assists practitioners in the implementation of the five phases of the nursing process. Classification systems are not related to disease process and are not used for financial purposes. Classification systems include interventions for all health conditions.
