The answer to this is letter C. It should be remembered that meningococcal meningitis is a condition that can be passed on not only to other children but also to adults. It will be a good idea to place the child in respiratory isolation in order to prevent the disease from spreading.
This will also be the best place for the child to receive the different treatments needed in order to get the situation under control. This is considered to be a serious condition because it can affect the brain and the spinal cord. This can develop very quickly and can be fatal in a few hours. This can be more serious in young children.
The initial therapeutic management of acute bacterial meningitis includes isolation precautions, initiation of antimicrobial therapy and maintenance of optimum hydration. Nurses should take necessary precautions to protect themselves and others from possible infection.
