正确答案:
4. encourage a high fluid intake.
解释 :
Mucus is secreted by the intestinal segment used to create the conduit and is a normal occurrence. The client should be encouraged to maintain a large fluid intake to help flush the mucus out of the conduit. Because mucus in the urine is expected, it is not necessary to change the appliance bag or to notify the HCP . The mucus is not an indication of an infection, so a urine culture is not necessary.
