The correct answer is:

partial


Explanation:

Nurses may perform partial or complete bed baths. With partial bed baths, the client is more independent in his care and only require assistance if the client cannot adequately clean due to mobility limitations. Complete bed baths require the assistance of the nurse and another healthcare team member to perform full bathing as the client is unable to or has limited ability to participate.
