44.ID: 383719741A nurse giving a client a bed bath drops the towel on the floor. The nurse should: Use a bath blanket as a towel Borrow a towel from the client’s roommate Wash her hands, pick up the towel, and shake the towel out Wash her hands and go to the linen room to obtain another towel Correct Rationale: To avoid spreading the client’s germs, the nurse must wash her hands before leaving the client’s room. Therefore the nurse should cover the client and ensure that the client is safe, wash her hands, and go to the linen room to obtain another towel. It is not appropriate to use a bath blanket as a towel. It is never appropriate to borrow other clients’ supplies, because this is inconsistent with the principles of infection control. The nurse would never use linen that had been dropped on the floor. Also,shaking linen spreads germs.Test-Taking Strategy: Focus on the data in the question and note that the nurse has dropped the towel onthe floor. Read each option carefully and use your knowledge of infection control and the principles of bathing a client to direct you to the correct option.
