A client express concern regarding the confidentiality of her medical information. The nurse assures the client that the nurse maintains client confidentiality by:

  • Explaining the exact limits of confidentiality in the exchanges between the client and the nurse.

  • Limiting discussion  about clients to the group room and hallways.

  • Summarizing the information the client provides during assessments and documenting this summary in the chart.

  • Sharing the information with all members of the healthcare team
