Question:

What is the most prompt action for the nursing assistant to carry out when they have to bath an Alzhmer's patient having visitors in the room for most of their shift?

A Request that the patient’s visitors step out of the room until the bath is complete.
Explaination

It is absolutely crucial, and within the scope of your duties as a nursing assistant, to take charge of your resident’s privacy. Visitors may wait in another area while you care for your resident. Also, a resident with Alzheimer’s may not make the best decision when it comes to their bathing schedule.
