A nurse is caring for a child with intussusception. Which of the following is an expected outcome for a goal to relieve acute pain from abdominal cramping?
1. The child exhibits no manifestations of discomfort.
2. The child is very still.
3. The child has a normal bowel movement.
4. The child has not vomited in 3 hours.
An expected client outcome for a goal to reduce acute pain related to cramping is that the client exhibits no manifestations of discomfort, such as crying or drawing the legs to the abdomen. Being very still may indicate either a pain state or a state of relaxation, and the nurse would need to assess the client further. Having normal bowel movements and not vomiting are desired outcomes, but the goal here is to relieve the pain.
