Mrs. Jordan is an elderly client diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. She becomes agitated and combative when a nurse approaches to help with morning care. The most appropriate nursing intervention in this situation would be to:
A. tell the client firmly that it is time to get dressed.
B. obtain assistance to restrain the client for safety.
C. remain calm and talk quietly to the client.
D. call the doctor and request an order for sedation.
