Question:

What is important for a nursing assistant to do when she is helping her patient with a partial bath?

A Keep the bath curtain closed in order to provide the patient with privacy.
Explaination

For any procedure that you conduct, one of the most important actions that you need to provide to your patient is privacy. Lukewarm water will not keep the patient warm enough, using a towel to cover your patient will not provide them with enough privacy and the patient’s feet are always washed last.
