The nurse is preparing a sterile field prior to a wet to dry dressing change and notices that the corner of the sterile drape is damp. What is the nurse's best action at this time?

▸ Continue with the procedure because the dampness is in the area already considered to be contaminated.

▸ Put down a fresh drape but use the liquids that have already been poured.

▸ Begin the procedure from the beginning, including pouring fresh liquids.

▸ Wait 5 minutes to see if the damp area will move into the area considered sterile. If the sterile area becomes damp, begin again with fresh supplies.
