Discussion: Caregiver’s right to privacy and confidentiality

Discussion: Caregiver’s right to privacy and confidentiality

Discuss the potential controversy when considering a patient’s right to know whether a caregiver has AIDS, and the caregiver’s right to privacy and confidentiality. Consider the following: A physician cut his hand with a scalpel while he was assisting another physician. Because of the uncertainty that blood had been transferred from the physician’s hand wound to the patient through an open surgical incision, he agreed to have a blood test for HIV. His blood tested positive for HIV and he withdrew himself from participation in further surgical procedures. Discuss the ethical and legal issues. While helping out another doctor, a doctor cut his hand with a scalpel. Because he wasn’t sure if blood from the doctor’s hand wound had gotten into the patient’s body through an open surgical cut, he agreed to a blood test for HIV. His blood was tested and found to have HIV, so he decided not to go through with any more surgeries. Talk about the moral and legal problems.
