Dignity and Privacy

Dignity and Privacy

Approved by CPD

As with dignity, privacy is open to interpretation and means different things to different people.

Services must be personalised as much as possible to respect people’s privacy. However, some more general rules around privacy might be:

Personal space for receiving visitors in a hospital or residential care should be available and accessible when needed. Staff should be sensitive to gender, culture or religion when undertaking nursing or personal care tasks, and basic manners should be fully respected. Hospital staff should be careful about how and where they impart confidential or sensitive information to patients, remembering that curtains around a bed are not soundproof.
People should not be made to feel embarrassed when receiving care and support.

You must have two crucial attributes when working with people in a caring, supportive environment. First, all service users must be treated with dignity, and the second critical attribute is privacy.

The course will start by defining dignity and privacy within the healthcare sector and explain how the two are often linked. It will then give you a range of helpful, professional tips about setting up the right working relationship with your service users and discuss some of the issues that can arise when dignity and privacy are not respected.
