Correct

- Give the client an enema.

- Give antispasmodics.

- Provide IV fluids.

- Give the client an NG tube.

- Give antibiotics by IV.

Rationale

In an acute flare up of diverticular disease, the client should have IV fluids and should have an NG tube placed. Antibiotics must be given by IV. An enema is contraindicated and the client should receive antispasmodics and bulk laxatives when the diverticular disease is uncomplicated and not during a flare up.
