2010hope Posted April 5, 2010 Report Share Posted April 5, 2010 I wanted input for how you would proceed with this situation: You have a patient that you've just diagnosed with AIDS. He doesn't want to tell his wife. What do you do if he refuses to inform his wife? My questions are: What are the doctor's legal obligations to prevent the spread of disease? Can you break patient confidentiality in this case? Are AIDS patients required by law to inform others that they are sexually active with about their status? Thanks!
