A nurse has delegated care of a client in wrist restraints to a nursing assistant. The nursing assistant should check the skin circulation under the restraints at least

  • every 15 minutes.
  • every 30 minutes.
  • every hour.
  • every 2 hours.
Number 2 is correct.
A client in restraints should be checked at least every 30 minutes for circulatory compromise. The restraints should be released every 2 hours to check skin integrity and range of motion.
