More specifically, in such cases involuntary hospitalization may be the only solution in order to reassure that the client will not harm or kill themselves. Therefore, the mental health professional has to inform and explain to their client before therapy starts, about the limits of confidentiality, namely that it will have to break if the clients express any suicidal thoughts or attempt to harm themselves or another person. However given the importance of these situations, it is essential the therapist evaluate effectively clients’ condition and certainty of their statements and act according to the principle of client’s beneficence (Isaacs & Stone,
Confidentiality is an important matter across various different professional fields, including in medicine, finance, business, law, education, government, counseling and technology. In some cases, people may be fined, sued or even subject to legal punishments such as incarceration if confidentiality is breached. However, the social workers are required to disclose confidential information about their client without his/her consent if the individual threatens to harm himself/herself, or others. Basically, this action limits a client’s right to self-determination against his/her wishes. Yet, the social worker would be ask to breach confidentiality agreements when one is pursuing involuntary psychiatric hospitalization of a troubled client; or social contact with a former client (Company, 2016).
• Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards. • Caregivers may be unclear of their responsibility to report or what constitutes abuse or neglect. • Caregivers may be fearful that they will be brought into a legal matter where their reputation and character may be questioned. • Caregivers may not want to become involved. • Caregivers may be fearful of retaliation from the caregiver/alleged abuser or their agency.
Covert use of medication can be seen as dishonest as the NMC code (2015) states respect the level to which people receiving care want to be involved in decisions about their own health, wellbeing and care; the code of practice also states act with honesty and integrity at all times, treating people fairly. In contrast however, Beauchamp and Childress (2009) highlights non disclosure, limited discolour, deception or lying may be considered when veracity and the principle of autonomy is thought to conflict with other ethical obligation. Jean was given the opportunity to understand and evaluate what was being asked and was provided with all relevant information to support their decision making process.
I would try to address whatever concerns they had to make them feel that they we have arrived at a solution to the problem with their assistance. I would also speak to Michael about how the CNAs may now view their relationship as a power conflict, which is a conflict between different status levels (Vivar, 2006). I would talk to him to ensure that he remains respectful and polite when speaking to the NAs, but to definitely continue to delegate appropriate tasks to the CNAS. I would also discuss the CNAs relationship with Michael and the expectations with the CNAs. The nurse manager also needs to be talked to learn why she is avoiding handling problems on her unit as evidenced by staff leaving and several complaints.
If I tell you a secret would you keep it to yourself or would you tell someone else? Confidentiality is the act of keeping information you are told secret. This means that the doctors are told information in private, so they need to keep the information confidential. The opposition has two sides: they say that there shouldn't be confidentiality and others say that they shouldn't be able to tell anyone in any situation. It is the legal duty of medical professionals to keep the information they are told confidential, however it is ethical in some situations where the information can be shared if necessary.
Confidentiality is a condition in which the participant’s identities are kept in confidence (McIntyre, 2005). Basically confidentiality is limited when the client poses a threat to another individual via violent behaviour or infringing on the individuals basic human rights (e.g. Anthony and other possible sexual partners in the future) (James & Gilliland, 2013). Informed consent is an agreement that is usually in written format (like a contract), that the client signs after being informed of confidentiality, and what the possible consequences are if the limitations have been broken (Wilson & MacLean, 2011). Thus by doing the confidentiality and informed consent in the pre-test counselling it would minimise the odds of the counsellor to mislead Thumi in any way to disclose any information that could be harmful towards herself, thus it will assist her in her decision making later on in the post-test
Therapeutic privilege is the idea that if the health care provider discloses information to a patient it may harm them more than help them. The concept of therapeutic privilege is tricky because it must be well documented that omitting the information is in the patient’s best interest. Also, in most cases, therapeutic privilege does not completely overrule informed consent. The health care provider must provide any information to the patient that they judge not to cause harm to the patient. For example, they may not disclose the diagnosis immediately but may explain and gain consent for the preferred treatment option.
The court considered however, that there was a “clear and present danger to his physical safety and life” and so he should retain his anonymity. So, if is suggested that a rape defendant’s life or physical safety could be endangered through revealing his identity, an anonymity order may be imposed. Some argue that granting anonymity for rape defendants could in fact encourage victims to report. As previously mentioned, a large proportion of rape perpetrators and known to the victim often intimately. Therefore, victims might be concerned that should they report to the police that they themselves will indirectly be identified due to the closeness of the relationship.
Confidentiality In a healthcare setting it is important to withhold personal information securely and safely. (Data protection act 1987 protect personal information). This can tell practitioners that information should be withheld.an example of maintaining confidentiality can be in a day Centre for elderly people this is shown when a service user discloses personal information the worker should not spread the information to other people. However it is appropriate if the only time this can be broken is when the person is a danger to others or themselves. Confidentiality is important because if it is kept it builds trust and this results in service users feeling safe and content with disclosing information.
