QOD 71: Visual Impairment (Fundamentals/Basic Care and Comfort

Question:

A nurse is caring for a patient who is visually impaired. Which of the following interventions is most appropriate when working with this client?

Answer:

C. Explain procedures in a step-by-step manner

Rationale: 

When working with a patient who is visually impaired, the nurse must remember to explain those aspects to the client that he cannot see, in addition to explaining the other elements of his care. The nurse should never assume that the patient knows what she is doing. Through caring for this client, the nurse should explain her procedures in a step-by-step manner so that he can be informed.
