Which of the following patients should the nurse assess first? (1) The patient complaining of pain that is 8/10. (2) The patient with a blood sugar of 56. (3) The mother who had an epidural and delivered her baby vaginally an hour ago and can't feel her legs. (4) The elderly lady with COPD that is leaning over the bedside table to breath easier.
The nurse should assess the patient with a blood sugar of 56. A blood sugar of 56 is considered hypoglycemic, the patient should be assessed for signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia and intervene as needed as severe hypoglycemia can lead to coma and death if not treated. Not addressing pain immediately does not place the patient with pain 8/10 at risk of injury (unlike the patient with low blood sugar who is at risk for injury if not treated). The effects of an epidural can last 1-2 hours and would explain why the mother cannot feel her legs. People with COPD find it easier to breathe in the tripod position which can be achieved by leaning forward on a bedside table.
