A male client receiving prolonged steroid therapy complains of always being thirsty and urinating frequently. The best initial action by the nurse would be to:
A. Perform a finger stick to test the client’s blood glucose level
B. Have the physician assess the client for an enlarged prostate
C. Obtain a urine specimen from the client for screening purposes
D. Assess the client’s lower extremities for the presence of pitting edema
Place an order in 3 easy steps. Takes less than 5 mins.
