Does anyone have a policy regarding what info nursing staff may release to family members that may call the ED or unit for updates or patient information on a current patient without a POA? Do you have nursing ask the patient if is it OK to discuss? Do you have the patient sign a form for nursing to discuss? What if the demographic info/facesheet lists the person as the contact or next of kin? Thanks.
