CORRECT ANSWER to Medical Question of the Day
 d) Offer her a phone book to "destroy" while staying with her.Reason: At this level of aggression, the client needs an appropriate physical outlet for the anger. She is beyond writing in a journal. Urging the client to talk to the nurse now or making threats, such as telling her that she will be restrained, is inappropriate and could lead to an escalation of her anger.
