**************MEDICAL TERM/ QUESTION OF THE DAY!***********************************
Category: Mood, Adjustment, and Dementia Disorders
A client who took an overdose of Tylenol in a suicide attempt is transferred overnight to the psychiatric inpatient unit from the intensive care unit.

************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!******************
From Ms. Davis (again!): Get involved! Participate in school activities. Take advantage of opportunities that come to you, and if they don't seek them out. Colleges (and cool people) aren't looking for complainers who don't do anything with their time.
SHOUT OUT! Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email

CORRECT ANSWER to Medical Question of the Day b) Question the primary health care provider about the Tylenol prescription.Reason: The nurse should question the Tylenol order because the client overdosed on Tylenol, and that analgesic would be contraindicated as putting further stress on the liver. There is no need to hold the PM Milk of Magnesia or Maalox. There is no indication that the client is agitated or needs medication for agitation. There is little likelihood that the client needs an IV after being transferred out of an intensive care unit, as the client will be able to take oral fluids.
