143. Correct answers: a, d, and e.
Cytotoxic chemicals are excreted for up to 48 hours after administration so precautions must be taken to protect the family from exposure. Clothing and linens need to be laundered separately; the mattress is covered with plastic to prevent it from absorbing excreted chemicals, and the toilet is double flushed after use. It is not necessary to wear gloves, limit contact to 10 minutes per hour, or use disposable dishes or other eating utensils.
144. Correct answer: b.
Factor must be stored in the refrigerator to be on hand in case of need. Prophylactic factor is given in the morning because of its short life. Ibuprofen is not given to a client with hemophilia because it is an NSAID and increases bleeding. Frequent rest periods are not needed by a child with hemophilia any more than by a child without hemophilia. The child with hemophilia needs to be protected from trauma which may start a bleed.
