Registered nurse interview questions shared by candidates
What will you do if you see your diabetic patient cold, clammy and having tremors?
Monitor blood sugar, vital signs and level of consciousness and take appropriate action. make sure your immediate supervisor is aware.
Those sound like hypoglycemic symptoms. If after checking the blood sugar and it is indeed low, I would quickly administer orange juice if the patient is not NPO. I agree you need to also take vital signs and inform the charge nurse and the most responsible physician if the patient does not improve with the OJ.
