A client is scheduled for a creatinine clearance test. Which one of the following preparations is appropriate for the nurse to make?
1. Instruct the client about the need to collect urine for 24 hours.
2. Prepare to insert an indwelling urethral catheter.
3. Provide the client with a sterile urine collection container.
4. Instruct the client to force fluids to 3,000 mL/day.
A creatinine clearance test is a 24-hour urine test that measures the degree of protein break-down in the body. The collection is not maintained in a sterile container. There is no need to insert an indwelling urinary catheter as long as the client is able to control urination. It is not necessary to force fluids.
CN: Reduction of risk potential; CL: Synthesize
