The assessment of the nonverbal clues will allow the nurse to determine whether the care plan is being perceived as satisfactory and will indicate the level of compliance that can be expected. Allowing the patient to control the interview does not meet nursing care needs. Lack of eye contact and forcing the components of the discharge plan on a patient are both counterproductive.
