pump is not working. D When a visitor suddenly becomes weak and dizzy, the nurse checks the visitors blood pressure and takes the visitor to the emergency department for treatment. Correct Rationale: An incident is any event that is not consistent with the routine operation of a healthcare unit or routine care of a client. Examples of incidents include client falls, needlestick injuries, a visitor having symptoms of illness, medication administration errors, accidental omission of prescribed therapies, and circumstances leading to injury or a risk for injury. An incident report does not need to be filed if a client has a seizure unless the client sustains injury as a result of the seizure. If the nurse determines that a client would benefit from the use of a walker to ambulate, he or she should take the appropriate action to obtain one. If the nurse notes that the battery of an intravenous infusion pump is not working, he or she should obtain a functioning pump and send the nonfunctioning pump to the appropriate department for repair. Test-Taking Strategy: Use the process of elimination and read each option carefully. Recalling that an incident is any event that is not consistent with the routine operation of a healthcare unit or routine care of a client will direct you to the correct option. Review the reasons for filing an incident report if you had difficulty with this question. Reference: Potter, P., & Perry, A. (2009). Fundamentals of nursing (7th ed., pp. 336, 337, 403).
