Integumentary Disorders Q 6

The nurse is teaching a female client with a leg ulcer about tissue repair and wound healing. Which of the following statements by the client indicates effective teaching?
    A. “I’ll limit my intake of protein.”
    B. “I’ll make sure that the bandage is wrapped tightly.”
    C. “My foot should feel cold.”
    D. “I’ll eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.”

Correct Answer: D. “I’ll eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.”

For effective tissue healing, adequate intake of protein, vitamin A, B complex, C, D, E, and K are needed. Therefore, the client should eat a high protein diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables to provide these nutrients.

Option A: The wound healing process further exacerbates protein loss, therefore during recovery, a high protein diet helps the body in repairing damaged tissues.
Option B: The bandage should be secure but not too tight to impede circulation to the area (needed for tissue repair).
Option C: If the client’s foot feels cold, circulation is impaired, thus inhibiting wound healing.
