Answer to Question #2

False

Rationale: It is important to note all prescription and over-the-counter medications, including herbs, that clients might purchase or grow in home gardens.

Question #3

Where is the most reliable location to assess for petechiae in a person with darkly pigmented skin?

Palms of the hands

Soles of the feet

Lining of the mouth

Upper chest and shoulders

Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer • All Rights Reserved

16

Answer to Question #3

C. Lining of the mouth

Rationale: In dark-skinned clients, petechiae are best visualized in the areas of lighter melanization, such as the abdomen, buttocks, and volar surface of the forearm. When the skin is black or very dark brown, petechiae cannot be seen in the skin. Petechiae are most easily seen in the mouth, particularly the buccal mucosa, and in the conjunctiva of the eye.
