Question:

Do calories from hard liquor add just as much caloric energy/fat as calories from other sources? What are "empty calories" so many people refer to?

Answer:

A serving of alcohol is typically not very high in calories, BUT it is metabolized very differently than our food (90 percent in the liver), which can make weight loss tricky. For example, a light beer is roughly 100 calories and so is a handful of nuts. In terms of calories, this is not much at all, but in terms of metabolism, they vary significantly, partly because you have fiber, protein, and fat in the nut and virtually none of these in beer.

Question:

After a patient's primary care physician makes rounds, the nurse notices that the physician wrote an order for a medication that is triple the normal dose. What should the nurse do?

Answer:

The nurse should call the physician who wrote the order as soon as possible to clarify the order. Administering the medication is incorrect because the nurse should know the dose is outside the normal range. A pharmacist may be helpful, but cannot change the order. Giving the medication could cause harm to the patient, and the nurse could be liable.
