the nurse is developing the plan of care for a client with suicidal ideations using person-centered care. which action should the nurse take?
A. teach the client about the benefits of a newly prescribed antidepressant medication
B. ask of the client understands what the Baker Act is
C. Teach the client about the need for one-to-one care.
D. Ask if the client would feel more safe having inpatient care or making a 24 hr safe contract.
Option D is the correct answer.
For a person centered care, the first priority should be given to the person's needs and problems. So for planning a person centered care for a client having suicidal thoughts, the nurse can ask the client about their feeling of security and comfort by asking questions like Option D; Ask if the client would feel more safe having inpatient care or making a 24 hour safe contract. This is because the client's safety is the responsibility of the nurse as there is more chance for the client to harm himself . But she can ask the client about his comfort also, in planning care.
Other options are incorrect as they are not satisfying the concept of person centered care.
