Nurse is attending a client with Addison’s disease, who has been admitted in hospital with a history of vomiting and nausea for the past 3 days. The client is receiving  IV (Solu-Medrol) glucocorticoids What would the nurse implement from the following interventions ??

  • 1- Evaluating the sodium and potassium levels
  • 2- Intake/output measurements
  • 3- Glucometer readings as ordered 
  • 4- Daily weights

Answer 3 is correct.

Rationale of This NCLEX Question

IV glucocorticoids (Solu-Medrol) raise the glucose levels and some time require coverage with insulin. Answer 2 is not necessary at this stage,  sodium and potassium levels would be monitored when the client is receiving mineral corticoids not IV glucocorticoids (Solu-Medrol) and daily weights is unnecessary so other answers 1, 2, and 4 are not correct.
