Maneuvering safely after orientation to the room.

Independently ambulating around the unit is not appropriate because the unit environment can change and injury could result. Assistance is necessary because of the clients visual deficit. It is unlikely the client can see well enough to read the materials. Maneuvering safely after orientation to the room is a realistic goal for a person with impaired vision. Orienting the client to the room should help the client to move safely. Using the bedpan is an unnecessary restriction on the client as she can be oriented to the bathroom or to call for assistance.
