A nurse is working with a family of a child who is hospitalized with asthma. The family members speak little English, and the child is being sent home on nebulizer treatments as well as an inhaler.
 
  In addition to enlisting an interpreter to help with the language barrier, the nurse should: 1. Provide written instructions before discharge.
   2. Address any healing beliefs the family has.
   3. Make sure the child comes back for the follow-up appointment.
   4. Make sure the parents can set up the treatments for their child.

2. Address any healing beliefs the family has.

Rationale:
The client who does not understand will learn little, and providing an interpreter to assist with communication is extremely important in this situation. However, if the prescribed treatment conflicts with the client/family's cultural healing beliefs, the client may not be compliant with the recommended treatments. To be effective, nurses must deal directly with any conflicts and differing values held by the client's parents. It is also important to provide written material and assess the psychomotor skills of the child, but the first priority is ascertaining any belief conflicts that may interfere with the treatment.
