A client says to the nurse, “The federal guards were sent to kill me.” What is the best nursing response to the client’s concern?
1."I don’t believe this is true."
2."The guards are not out to kill you."
3."Do you feel afraid that people are trying to hurt you?"
4."What makes you think the guards were sent to hurt you?"
Note the strategic word best. Use therapeutic communication techniques. Eliminate options that show disagreement with the client or encourage any discussion regarding the delusion
