Document that the infection has completely cleared -the client should be assessed following completion of antibiotic therapy to determine whether the infection has cleared. determine whether the ear infection has affected her hearing would be done if there are repeated instances of otitis media; therefore, it is incorrect. make sure that she has taken all the antibiotic is incorrect because it will not determine whether the child has completed the medication. obtain a new prescription in case the infection recurs is incorrect because the purpose of the recheck is to determine whether the infection is gone.
