Demostrate the procedure to the client and have the client return the demonstration.

Demonstration by the nurse with a return demonstration by the client ensures that the client can perform wound care using the correct technique. Clients may claim to understand discharge instructions when they do not. An interpreter or family member may communicate the verbal or written instructions inaccurately.
