A nurse is reinforcing teaching associated with an impending kidney transplant. Which client statements would the nurse evaluate as indicating need for additional teaching? (Select all that apply.)
1. "It would have sure been good if I had been born an identical twin."
2. "My body needs this new kidney so much that I am sure it won't be rejected."
3. "My body will recognize that the new kidney is from someone else."
4. "Getting a kidney transplant will cause me to be immune from anything the donor was immune to."
5. "Transplants can cause antigen-antibody responses in my body."

More questions for this book are available here
The answer is 2, 4
Rationale:
1. The best scenario is that an identical twin would be available and willing to donate the organ since identical twins have identical genetic makeup.
2. The body is able to identify the new kidney as foreign but is not able to identify whether or not the tissues are beneficial to the body.
3. The kidney will be identified as foreign tissue.
4. The donor's immunity is not transferred to the recipient.
5. Antigenantibody response is the basis of organ rejection.
