leave a comment »

Here is the weekly question posted on the NCSBN Learning Extension:

Privacy and confidentiality of client information is legally protected. In which of these situations would a nurse make an exception to this practice?

  1. When a family member offers information about their loved one
  2. When the client threatens self-harm or harm to others
  3. When the provider decides the family has a right to know the client’s diagnosis
  4. When a visitor insists that the visitor has been given permission by the client

The correct answer is: 2 – When the client threatens self-harm or harm to others
