Parallel to the bed on the right side-rationale: the client can maintain his weight and pivot with his left foot if the chair is placed on his right side parallel to the bed. the nurse shouldnt place the chair on the clients left side or perpendicular to the bed because he wont be able to support his weight on his right leg.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: safety and infection controlcognitive level: applicationreference: ellis, j.r., and bentz, p.m. modules for basic nursing skills, 7th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 355.
