The major focus for nursing care of the client with meningitis will be to:

1. Enhance coping skills.
2. Provide cognitive stimulation.
3. Assess risk for injury and prevent complications.
4. Increase cardiac output.

Explanation

Clients with meningitis will be less able to protect themselves from both internal and external injury. Providing cognitive stimulation and increasing cardiac output are contraindicated with meningitis. Enhancing coping skills may be a focus if the client has residual effects from meningitis but it is not a major focus. Omit options that would put added stress on the client, such as options 2 and 4. Focus of care is on physiological protection.
