BTW, as a nursing student, I get curious and look at my patients chart sometimes. I am part of the nursing team so I can know whatever the nurse knows. I don't worry about certain things because I'm not the nurse, so there there are certain things I don't need to be concerned about to do my job right. However, whenever the doctor or nurse knows certain things, I have to make sure the patient does not know what we know because that can spell disaster ( family chaos, newly found hiv status, once they get discharged they are going to jail, all sorts of stuff)

I treat everyone with universal precautions because there are many more things in the hospital environment that is easier to catch than hiv. You have to walk on very thin lines with certain patients. Many of them are very ignorant and money hungry, so you have to cover your tracks as a healthcare provider or as I like to say Cover your Ass. I hope this doctor has good malpractice insurance.





yup me too, because she is taking him to the cleanersClap

no, they dont need to know everything in the chart.. i agree with that part. 

i think it also depends on the place.. i do know that cna's that go to ppls houses know most things. if its a convalescent home.. no. 
 
Yes coconess, that's what UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS are for . . . we treat everybody and all body secretions like it's hiv positive.  In regards to cancer, let me go further. .. some cancer pts get neutropenic, and may be on isolation because there are a lot of things we can give THEM, so it is to protect them from US.  That's when we will tell an aide to mask and gown up.
 
When you are in home health, the patient  tells you all kinds of things, some you didn't even wanna know Shocked  It is not a violation if the PATIENT tells you themselves.
