Final Answer :
Explanation :
The patient's behaviours support the nursing diagnosis of Risk for injury.The patient is confused,is pulling at the IV line,and is trying to climb out of bed.Injury could result if the patient falls out of bed or begins to bleed as a result of a pulled line.Nothing in the scenario indicates that this patient lacks knowledge or is at risk for poisoning.Nothing in the scenario refers to the patient's home maintenance.
