A patient walks to the nurse’s desk and casually mentions he is “going for a smoke” outside. When the LPN reminds him that the hospital has a strict no-smoking policy everywhere on campus, including outside, he becomes verbally abusive. What should the nurse’s first response be?
Call the attending doctor for a nicotine patch.
Tell him if he insists, he must go off hospital grounds or he may incur a fine.
Tell the patient he is being inappropriate and that he should lower his voice.
Calmly walk the patient back to his room.
