A client who is legally blind has been admitted to the nursing unit. Which of the following activities should the nurse delegate to the unlicensed assistive person (UAP)? Select all that apply.

1. Assist the client with meals.
2. Complete the admission interview form.
3. Assess the impact of the lost vision on the client’s daily life.
4. Assist the client to ambulate in the hall.
5. Ask the client what community services are being utilized.

Explanation

The UAP can perform procedures and nursing care activities. Client care that requires assessment (options 2, 3, and 5) are not within the scope of the functions of the UAP. Recall that UAPs are trained and educated to perform simple care procedures. Use this framework to eliminate each of the incorrect options systematically.
