Classmates responds:
Well, my first opinion on this type of situation would be to act professional towards whoever the patient was. I would take her to the back and do all the necessary things that usually done and seat her in a room to wait for the doctor. I would not treat her any different way or try to convince her to change her mind. I do not believe it would be my place to say anything to her especially while I am at work. I will say maybe if she has any questions or concerns that I am able to answer she can contact me at any time. I also would not say anything to my friend. If I said something to my friend, it would be breaking HIPAA laws and I could get in trouble by the law as well as lose my job for breaking the patient’s privacy. It does not matter who it is or who you are working for or where you are at the time, it is never okay to share anyone’s information without their consent.
