I was in nursing school, found out it wasn't for me. I do have many family members and friends who are nurses so I enjoy this board. I was just wondering what your policies are on patient confidentialbity. The reason I ask is that my husband's ex is a nurse and when a family member was in the hospital for major surgery she had a terrible drug reaction and basically went through drug withdrawls, which I have since found out are very common with the pain medication and quanity she had been given. The ex looked up her records and told my stepkids what had happened. Our family has not decided whether to pursue a lawsuit yet and we were curious as to what the various policies on this issue was and the consquences of this. Any feedback is appreciated!!!!!
