B. The pain plan needs changing.
C. Nonpharmacological pain-relieving strategies are now appropriate.
D. Complications from surgery are occurring
B
The nurse caring for a client with a nursing diagnosis of impaired physical mobility for the past 3 days recognizes that the client is not eating as expected. The nurse recognizes the need to:
A. Change the nursing diagnosis to feeding self-care deficit
B. Consult with occupational therapy about feeding aids

C. Confirm the availability of the interventions
D. Reevaluate the interventions
D
Although assessment may be part of the evaluation, evaluation may not be part of the assessment. The nurse understands that the difference between assessment and evaluation is _______________________.
For evaluation to occur, one or more interventions must have been implemented. Although assessment may assist in identifying the attainment of goals and outcomes, and thus help in the evaluation, it a

The following are steps in the evaluation process, comparing expected and actual findings. Place them in correct order.
a. Compare outcome criteria with actual client response.
b. Examine goal to determine desired client behavior.
c. Judge agreement between desired and actual findings.
d. Assess client for expected behavior.
e. Determine why expected and actual findings do not agree.
b, d, a, c, e. This process allows for a logical sequence of evaluation and is easier to perform once the nurse has cared for the client over a period of time.
The nurse develops a nursing diagnosis of sleep deprivation. What evaluative measure would the nurse use to determine the client’s progress in alleviating this problem?
The nurse would compare the amount of sleep the client had usually been getting when he was sleep deprived and compare it to the amount of sleep he is currently receiving after implementing interventions. If the number of hours of sleep increased and the client was feeling more rested, this would indicate a partial or full resolution of the problem.
