Q: The charge nurse assigned the care of a client with acute renal failure and hypernatremia to you, a newly graduated RN. Which actions can you delegate to the nursing assistant? (Select all that apply.)

1. Provide oral care every 3 to 4 hours
2. Monitor for indications of dehydration
3. Administer 0.45% saline by IV line
4. Assess daily weights for trends

Correct Answer: 1
Providing oral care is within the scope of practice of the nursing assistant. Monitoring and assessing clients, as administering IV fluids, require the additional education and skills of the RN.
