Here, the nurse should provide a clear path for ambulation without obstacles to make sure the client's safety specific to this impairment if that client has an impairment of cranial nerve II.

The cranial nerve II is also called the optic nerve that joins human eyes to the brain. It also carries the impulses (formed by the retina) from the eyes to the brain in the form of images. Here, all other options except D. do not ensure the client's safety specific to this impairment.

Option D is the right answer.
Provide a clear path for ambulation without obstacles is what the nurse should do to ensure the client's safety specific to the impairment of cranial nerve II (optic nerve).

Speaking loudly to the client, testing the temperature of the shower water and checking the temperature of the food on the delivery tray do not ensure specific safety to the impaired cranial nerve.

Provide a clear path for ambulation without obstacles -cranial nerve ii is the optic nerve, which governs vision. the nurse can provide safety for the visually impaired client by clearing the path of obstacles when ambulating. testing the shower water temperature would be useful if there were an impairment of peripheral nerves. speaking loudly may help overcome a deficit of cranial nerve viii (vestibulocochlear). cranial nerve vii (facial) and ix (glossopharyngeal) control taste from the anterior two thirds and posterior third of the tongue, respectively.
