It means carelessness in a matter in which the law mandates carefulness. A breach of this duty gives a patient the right to initiate action against negligence. Persons who offer medical advice and treatment implicitly state and undertake to have the skill and knowledge to do as under: • To undertake particular job. • To decide whether to take a case or not , • To decide the treatment suitable for particular case • To administer that treatment.

While it is the responsibility of the health information management (HIM) department to cooperate with law enforcement in the event of a crime, this can still be achieved without a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) breach. HIM department managers must maintain protection of patient privacy when delivering reports to the public. In the case involving Memorial Hermann Health System (MHHS), there were many causes of action the patient had against MHHS. Those include, but are not limited to, invasion of privacy, malpractice, defamation, negligence for improper disclosure and breach of confidentiality. However, the main cause of action was directly related to a breach of confidentiality.

Despite JB expressing his dislike of being placed in seclusion, nursing and medical staff agreed JB’s capacity to make an informed autonomous decision was impaired due to his current mental distress. Roberts (2004) states that the paternalism in mental health is rationalized through the concept that mental illness can inhibit a persons’ competency and ability to act autonomously in the governance of their care and therefore principles of beneficence and non-maleficence must be introduced to ensure that person receives adequate care. Prinsen & van Delden (2009) also argue that coercive measures such as seclusion can be necessary in reclaiming personal autonomy and control. However this paternalistic viewpoint of overruling a patient’s autonomy is arguable especially if a person is deemed incompetent due to their mental illness. Szasz believed mental illness was mythical and the introduction of a diagnosis was merely to label social deviancy from social norms.

Hence, communication between these professionals is important to ensure mutual agreement concerning patient treatment. For example, Poulis (2007) raised the issue of deciding patient endpoints of physical rehabilitation. As physiotherapists and other professionals may have differing end goals regarding patient rehabilitation, decisions to halt physiotherapy treatment may not be made exclusively by the physiotherapist itself. With effective communication, a common goal for patients rehabilitation can be agreed on and the chances of patients receiving contradicting information decreases. Good interpersonal skills reduces
Furthermore, to disclose this information the physiotherapist must have permission from the service user and if the law allows. Reasons to disclose information must be in the service user’s best interests or if it will protect the public. Patients coming to see physiotherapists have an expectation that the information they present will be confidential and keeping to this allows trust to be created between physiotherapist and patient (UK Essays, 2013). Confidentiality must be maintained so that standard 5 is met of the SCPE allowing for the best possible treatment to be
