What are the consequences for nursing students who unintentionally breach patient confidentiality?

That's quite vague. Homework? 

 

HOW was it breached?

Because breaching confidentiality CAN get a student dismissed, banned from a clinical site, and more.

There's a case study where a nursing student contacted the patient's family member who was involved in the patient's care to remind them of an appointment. No names and specific informations were involved.. What consequences would this student face?

So since this IS homework- how it works is YOU first tell us what you think the answer is- and then we help you understand further. 

 

How it DOESN'T work is - you post a questions and we do your homework for you.
