The parents of a 7-year-old child with glomerulonephritis ask what they can do to ensure that their other children do not develop the disease. The nurse should respond with which of the following?
1. “If you suspect your child has a urinary tract infection, see your primary health care provider right away.”
2. “I am afraid there is nothing you can do; glomerulonephritis is a genetic disorder.”
3. “Glomerulonephritis is not contagious, so your other children will not get the disease.”
4. “If your child has a streptococcal infection, complete the course of prescribed antibiotics.”
The most common noninfectious renal disease in children is acute poststreptococcal glo-merulonephritis. Ensuring that children diagnosed with streptococcal infections complete a full course of antibiotics will decrease their risk of developing acute glomerulonephritis.
Parents should contact the primary health care provider if they suspect a UTI; however, glomerulonephritis is not caused by a UTI. Glomerulonephritis is not a genetic disease , which makes answers 2 incorrect information. Although glo-merulonephritis is not contagious, other children may be acute poststreptococcal glo-merulonephritis, which makes answers 3 incorrect information.
