Privacy and Confidentiality:
Students who have clinical experiences in a health care environment are exposed to sensitive and confidential information. All health information and experiences related to patients in the clinical environment need to be treated confidentially. Confidential information related to patients is communicated to staff and the instructor to assist the patients to the best possible health and well-being. Information about a patient should not be shared without a valid purpose and only in appropriate areas. Patient information is not shared in public areas such as hallways, elevators, dining, or break areas. A breach in confidentiality can result in immediate dismissal from the program. Questions about confidentiality should be directed to the instructor.
Students of CHI Health St Elizabeth’s CNA program are expected to maintain cleanliness and follow infection control procedures required by the hospital. If an exposure should occur, the instructor will be notified immediately and facility procedures are implemented to control the spread of infection. The instructor will notify the hospital’s employee health department immediately for follow-up evaluation.
