While caring for a client with cervical cancer, the nurse notes that the radioactive implant is lying in the bed. The nurse should:
a. Place the implant in a biohazard bag and return it to the lab
b. Give the client a pair of gloves and ask her to reinsert the implant
c. Use tongs to pick up the implant and return it to a lead-lined container
d. Discard the implant in the commode and double-flush
Place an order in 3 easy steps. Takes less than 5 mins.
