The client has a history of heart failure and takes furosemide (Lasix), potassium chloride (K-Dur), and irbesartan (Avapro). The nursing assistant (NA) received complaints from the roommate in the semiprivate room that the client’s television is too loud. The nursing assistant is in front of a sunny window and tells the client to turn down her television. The client leans forward, cups her hand over her ear, stares at the nursing assistant’s lips, and asks her to repeat the information. The client still does not understand. The LPN/LVN had entered the room to assess the client and saw what happened and needs to provide care for the client with the hearing loss. What further assessment does the LPN/LVN need to perform to help improve communication with the client and address what could be possible causes for the sudden hearing loss? What should the LPN/LVN discuss privately with the nursing assistant to help her improve communication with the client?
