Patients right to privacy and Confidentially

Scenario: You are a nurse in the surgical unit of a large metropolitan hospital. A young woman has been admitted for an ovarian cyst removal later the same day. As you are taking her health history, she reveals that she has recently been diagnosed as HIV positive. In response to a query from you, she acknowledges that she has not yet seen a healthcare provider regarding this diagnosis. She also quickly adds that she hasn’t disclosed this condition to her new boyfriend, who is in the waiting room, or to any other family members or friends.

During the health assessment, your patient has revealed that her boyfriend does not know about her HIV-positive status.

Support your approach with scholarly references. (1–2 paragraphs)

Identify two actions you would take—or ensure are taken—in this scenario to preserve patient confidentiality. Support your response with reference to the ANA’s position paper on privacy and confidentiality. (1–2 paragraphs).
