The Code of Ethics for Nurses is “a succinct statement of the ethical obligations and duties of every individual who enters the nursing profession” 15 16 / Part 1: The Essence of Ethics and Advocacy in Nursing (p. 5). There are nine provisions in the code, and the third one addresses advocacy. It states, “The nurse promotes, advocates for and strives to protect the health, safety and rights of the patient” (p. 12). In the interpretive statements for this third provision, nurses are asked to advocate for an environment that provides for physical privacy and auditory privacy when discussing issues of a personal nature.

Physicians or organizations providing counseling to a minor may, but need not, inform the minor’s legal guardian of care given or needed 32 / Part 1: The Essence of Ethics and Advocacy in Nursing especially if parents are responsible for paying the medical bills and refuse to provide insurance or other payment coverage without information. If the minor is legally emancipated in the state where care is rendered, then information is confidential and the provider has a legal and ethical mandate not to disclose it.

Confidentiality may be severely violated when a family member is triangulated into a healthcare decision, especially a minor child, who is asked to translate, read, or explain about sensitive personal information, such as the disclosure of an HIV diagnosis or sexually related information. Legal requirements stipulate that a service is in place to ensure that translators of all languages are in place 24 hours a day. Most institutions meet this requirement with a telephone service, where the provider calls in to obtain a translator within a “reasonable” amount of time for a process of telephone consent.
