A severely burned patient is now in the acute rehabilitative phase of burn care. How can the nurse help to minimize psychological and emotional problems in this patient?
1. Involve the patient in self-care activities as soon as medically feasible.
2. Keep the patient sedated as long as possible while healing continues.
3. Shelter the patient from any negative interactions about the future.
4. Do not allow mirrors on the burn rehabilitation unit.

The answer is 1
Rationales:
1. A patient who is involved with self-care is more likely to integrate physical changes into his or her self-concept in a healthy manner.
2. Sedation only delays the time when the patient will have to face the changes that have occurred.
3. The patient must face and deal with all aspects of the future, positive and negative.
4. Attempts to keep the patient from seeing burn wounds and scarring only delays the time when these changes must become a part of self-concept.
