A patient is about to undergo a kidney transplant. She will be given an immunosuppressant drug before, during, and after surgery to minimize organ rejection. During the preoperative teaching session, which information will the nurse include about the medication therapy?


▸ Several days before the surgery, the medication will be administered orally.

▸ The oral doses need to be taken 1 hour before meals to maximize absorption.

▸ Mix the oral liquid with juice in a disposable Styrofoam cup just before administration.

▸ Intramuscular injections of the medication will be needed for several days preceding surgery.

Several days before the surgery, the medication will be administered orally.

Several days before transplant surgery, immunosuppressant drugs need to be taken by the oral route, if possible, to avoid intramuscular injections and the risk for infection caused by the injections. Avoid Styrofoam containers because the medication may adhere to the side of the container. These medications are taken with food to minimize gastrointestinal upset.
