Which action by the client tells the nurse that the client understands the necessary respiratory precautions to be taken at home? Staying secluded in the bedroom Wearing an oxygen mask at all times
Keeping the house closed up to minimize the spread of disease Disposing of contaminated tissues in a container with a leak-proof bag Correct Rationale: The client under respiratory precautions at home does not need to remain secluded; the client would not be at home if he or she were infectious. However, proper respiratory precautions are necessary. The house should be properly ventilated, and the windows should be opened as much as possible. Wearing an oxygen mask at all times is not a respiratory precaution, and there is no informationin the question to indicate that oxygen is necessary. Contaminated tissues should be discarded in container with a leak-proof bag and then placed in an outdoor trash bin. Tissues should not be left lying around.
