A client with chronic renal failure is experiencing central nervous system changes caused by uremic toxins. Which nursing intervention would be most appropriate for addressing the changes?
1. Allow the client to grieve for body image changes.
2. Restrict foods that are high in potassium.
3. Restrict fluid intake to 1,000 mL/day.
4. Assess the client’s mental status regularly.
Central nervous system changes include such symptoms as apathy, lethargy, and decreased concentration. Seizures and coma can also occur. The nurse should assess the client’s level of consciousness at regular intervals and maintain client safety. Allowing the client to express feelings related to body image changes and restricting foods high in potassium and fluid intake are all appropriate activities, but they are not related to the central nervous system changes.
