Nurse Tamara discovers scabies when assessing a client who has just been transferred to the medical-surgical unit from the day surgery unit. To prevent scabies infection in other clients, the nurse should:
A. wash hands, apply a pediculicide to the client’s scalp, and remove any observable mites.
B. isolate the client’s bed linens until the client is no longer infectious.
C. notify the nurse in the day surgery unit of a potential scabies outbreak.
D. place the client on enteric precautions.
