Which step should be taken by the nurse manager if she knows the importance of good, timely client education?
A nurse-manager in the office of a group of surgeons has received complaints from discharged clients about inadequate instructions for performing home care.

B. Review and revise the way client education is conducted in the surgeon's office.

The correct answer to this question is D. Every nurse who provides client care should also provide client education, for example communicating adequate instructions regarding at-home care to discharged clients. Nurses must work together to establish the best methods of educating clients, for example verbally or through written media like instruction care brochures.

The most appropriate response is to contact the facility's nurse-manager, not the nursing staff. Evaluating client education in only the surgeon's office does not consider the entire client education process and all of the staff providing it. Client education is an important nursing responsibility and every complaint deserves attention.
