- The nurse should always place a zero before a decimal point so that no one misreads the figure, which could result in a dosage error. The nurse should never insert a zero at the end of a dosage that includes a decimal point because this could be misread, possibly leading to a tenfold increase in the dosage.

37) C
- This response conveys empathy and invites further discussion of the client's concerns. The other options block communication by failing to address the client's concerns and feelings.

38) B
- The client should avoid consuming large amounts of vitamin K because vitamin K can interfere with anticoagulation. The client may need to report diarrhea, but diarrhea isn't an effect of taking an anticoagulant. An electric razor — not a straight razor — should be used to prevent cuts that cause bleeding. Aspirin may increase the risk of bleeding; acetaminophen should be used for pain relief.

39) A
- A rebound effect from racemic epinephrine can occur up to 4 hours after treatment with signs of respiratory distress (tachypnea, restlessness, and cyanosis).
