A patient is coming to your office with Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. The doctor asks you to educate the patient on thiamine-rich food. You provide her with a list of foods that contain
beef, pork, eggs, and legumes.
You are working as a RN on the floor of a busy labor and delivery unit and a patient presents who thinks she may be in labor. She is a G1P0 at 39 3/7 weeks gestation confirmed by early ultrasound. Her contractions are irregular and she rates them as moderate in pain. Standing orders place her in observation status and you do a full set of vital signs which are within normal limits for her baseline. FHT's are 145 with moderate variability. She continues to contract every 8 minutes and is breathing through contractions. Your cervical exam reveals that she is 1 cm dilated 80% effaced and +3 station. You allow her to sleep and recheck her cervix two hours later and she is without change. Her contractions have spaced to 10-12 minutes apart with the same intensity. You updated the doctor and prepare her for discharge home. As you are explaining her discharge information she asks you if she is in labor. You explain to her....
The true sign of labor is cervical change and since she has not made cervical change in the observation she is not in labor at this time.
