Rationale: Social distance ranges from 4 to 12 feet. Many interactions with clients occur at this distance. Intimate distance ranges from personal contact to 1½ feet; direct client care and assessment are done in this distance range. Personal distance ranges from 1½ to 4 feet; sitting at the bedside to interact with the client is done at the personal distance range. Public distance starts at 12 feet and is the distance at which interactions with larger groups take place.
