Confidentiality

Staff, students and volunteers are bound by privacy laws and strict confidentiality must be maintained.  In a rural setting such as this, it is not uncommon to encounter acquaintances amongst the patient population, making adherence to the Confidentiality Policy even more important.

 

Pre-printed handover sheets are provided in the acute/sub acute wards for the purpose of providing patient diagnosis and doctor. They must be placed in the shredder bin at the end of the day to protect patient privacy. Wards will also have white boards located in the nurse’s stations if you need to locate specific patients.
