The information Hannah disclosed would be recorded, signed and dated, reported to my line manager and those directly involved in Hannah's care such as her G.P. who could try to help her understand the benefits of taking her medication.

The patient did not feel it was anything serious as the spells did not last long and she did not experience any pain during them. She requested that she did not want any of her family members to know that she was in hospital as she feared they would worry about her, and that she hoped the doctor would commence his ward round shortly to discharge her. I was making this particular patient’s bed when four doctors had arrived onto the ward and had entered our bay. I was standing by the patient’s bedside when the doctors introduced themselves and continued to talk to the patient. I felt I should leave the patient whilst she was talking to the doctor as the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) state I should respect the patient’s rights to confidentiality at all times.
