In this case, the nurse should approach the patient by telling the truth about the situation of the patient and the nurse should be honest to the patient and inform the details of the situation even if the condition is bad or good. Explaining to the 16 year old patient of his or her condition in detail will help the patient understand what is he/her should go through and what treatment or laboratory test that still be conducted to the patient in order for the doctor to fully make the patient recover.
