Client and family teaching begins the day of admission.-rationale: duration of hospital stays is decreasing, and discharged clients go home with more complex needs than in the past. teaching should begin on the day of admission. this allows time for adequate teaching and for the client and caregivers to become comfortable with any new procedures they will need to perform. trying to teach the caregiver immediately before discharge wouldnt allow time for practice and return demonstrations. most insurance reimbursements dont allow for lengthy hospital stays. the main responsibility for teaching clients and family members falls to the nurse, not the physician.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: management of carecognitive level: analysisreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 29.
