Top 5 Situations That Legally Require Health Care Professionals to Breach Patient Confidentiality (in Canada)

1) If the patient has an infectious disease such as TB and typhoid.

2) If the patient has certain venereal diseases such as syphilis and gonorrhea.

3) If the patient has AIDS (HIV is a province-to-province issue -- in BC, it is not required to be reported).

4) If the patient is dangerous, and third parties need to be warned.

5) If there is evidence of child abuse/neglect.


are you counselling too?
