When a family member has questions about privacy and consent
Patient privacy is very important. Health care workers ensure that they respect a patient’s right to privacy by asking them who they would like to be involved in their care and what information they would like to be shared. This is why you may have to wait until your family member has given consent before you can receive information from the health care team or share information with them.
