Patient confidentiality in health care is expected. The ability of the healthcare provider to preserve patient confidentiality is an ethical responsibility and is essential in facilitating trust between the healthcare provider and the patient. Continuity of patient confidentiality is imperative so patients may discuss their medical and mental health concerns without any fear of scrutiny. The absence of patient confidentiality hinders the healthcare provider’s ability to successfully treat the patient’s health concern. This case study will review Tarasoff v.

Since nursing homes tend to provide care to a vulnerable population they can be taken advantage of, overlooked or mistreated by staff and with residents potentially underreporting these incidents due to fear of retaliation by staff identifies this as significant ethical issues among nursing homes.

There is always the conflict between providing the resident with a fair amount of decisions regarding their activities of daily living, special accommodations, and independence.

Nursing interventions and rationales include: assess influence of cultural beliefs, norms, values and client’s ability to modify behavior; assess the effect of fatalism on a client’s ability to modify behavior; clarity culturally related health beliefs and practices; provide culturally targeted education and health care services (Ackley & Ladwig, 2014, pp. 413–414).

Nurse should explain details of procedures or necessary changes that would bring positive healthy results, withhold the judgement and attempt to understand the patient

Professionals should tell patients about the costs of tests to be transparent. No doubt, testing, and screening are costly, and some may be labeled preventive care that isn’t covered by insurance may not pay for. Further testing may be better to establish a diagnosis.

Having the knowledge of FLC gives me a foundation for understanding what typical issues stand out in each season of one's life. This helps me to pay special or extra attention to an individual's progress or stagnation in the area, how that presents symptoms in the client, and how it may impact their later growth or progression. For instance, the client is currently at Stage 2 but have yet to prepare to be a mother as she does not want to have any children after marriage. Therefore, she missed some tasks such as making space for children and joining in child rearing, financial and household tasks.
