Family members are caring for a patient with HIV in the patients home. What should the nurse encourage family members to do to reduce the risk of infection transmission?

Answer Explanation: When caring for a patient with HIV at home, family members should use caution when providing care that may expose them to the patients blood, such as shaving. Dishes, bed linens, and bedclothes, unless contaminated with blood, only require the usual cleaning.
