Restraining the client’s limbs

The limbs are never restrained because the strong muscle contractions could cause the client harm. If the client is not in bed when seizure activity begins. the nurse lowers the client to the floor. if possible. protects the head from injury. and moves furniture that may injure the client. Other aspects of care are as described for the client who is in bed.Options A. C. and D: Nursing actions during a seizure include providing for privacy. loosening restrictive clothing. removing the pillow and raising side rails in the bed. and placing the client on one side with the head flexed forward. if possible. to allow the tongue to fall forward and facilitate drainage.
