When assessing a client who reports a back injury, it is critical for the nurse to question the client about which of the following?
1. Family history of back problems.
2. Previous hospitalizations.
3. Personal history of illness.
4. Mechanism of injury.
The mechanism of injury is always the most critical information to obtain from a client with a musculoskeletal injury. In the event of a back injury, the mechanism of injury provides the greatest clue as to the extent of injury and the proper treatment plan. The other questions are important but will not give the critical information needed related to this specific problem and injury.
