Review (2 of 2)
You are treating a woman who was stung numerous times by hornets. On assessment, you note that some of the stingers are still imbedded in her skin. You should:
pull the stingers out with tweezers. Rationale: Using tweezers may squeeze more venom into the patient.
cover the stings with tight dressings. Rationale: Remove the stingers—do not leave them in place.
