Cancer and Oncology Q 145

A cervical radiation implant is placed in the client for treatment of cervical cancer. The nurse initiates what most appropriate activity order for this client?
    A. Out of bed ad lib
    B. Ambulation to the bathroom only
    C. Bed rest
    D. Out of bed in a chair only

Correct Answer: C. Bed rest

Option C: The client with a cervical radiation implant should be maintained on bed rest in the dorsal position to prevent movement of the radiation source. The head of the bed is elevated to a maximum of 10 to 15 degrees for comfort. The nurse avoids turning the client on the side. If turning is absolutely necessary, a pillow is placed between the knees and, with the body in straight alignment, the client is logrolled.
