A paranoid male client with schizophrenia is losing weight, reluctant to eat, and voicing concerns about being poisoned. The best intervention by nurse Dina would be to:
A. Allow the client to open canned or pre-packaged food
B. Restrict the client to his room until 2 lbs are gained
C. Have a staff member personally taste all of the client’s food
D. Tell the client the food has been x-rayed by the staff and is safe
Place an order in 3 easy steps. Takes less than 5 mins.
