When the nurse is assessing a client’s cultural adaptation, which of the following statements is least sensitive to the client’s needs?
1. “What are some of your favorite foods?”
2. “Describe any health problems in your past.”
3. “Please tell me how you would like to be addressed.”
4. “Your eyes look dark; is this normal for you?”
The statement, “Your eyes look dark,” is the least sensitive statement because it points out an obvious difference for no real purpose. The nurse has a reason to ask the client about favorite foods and needs to know about past health problems. Also, it is appropriate for the nurse to ask the client how she wishes to be addressed.
