The nurse is preparing a client for paracentesis. Which of the following activities should the nurse complete in preparation for this test?
1. Have the client void before the procedure.
2. Scrub the client’s abdomen with Betadine solution.
3. Position the client supine.
4. Put the client on nothing-by-mouth (NPO) status 4 hours before theprocedure.
Before paracentesis, the client is asked to void. This is done to collapse the bladder and decrease the risk of accidental bladder perforation. The abdomen is not prepared with Betadine. The client is placed in a Fowler’s position. The client does not need to be put on NPO status before the procedure.
CN: Reduction of risk potential; CL: Apply
