Provide the client with normal sleep aids, such as pillows, back rubs, and snacks.-rationale: the nurse should begin with the simplest interventions, such as pillows or snacks, before introducing interventions that require greater skill such as teaching relaxation techniques. sleep medication should be avoided whenever possible. asking the client about the quality of his sleep is appropriate if simpler interventions fail.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: analysisreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 1173.
