Both square, and this website are secure websites, that encrypt your information on transmitting. You will know if a site is secure by the 'https' status, and not a http status at the top of the page on the website address bar. The 's' after the http is telling you it is a secure website.
Your credit card details: At the time of payment only in person, and directly after service is provided for that appointment, it is not stored unless you choose it to be. Your consent is always requested beforehand in both instances at the time of contact.
Informed Consent: It is required at time of contact to store yours or your loved one's minimal personal information you submit via this website, and also prior to treatment provision at the time of admission and assessment takes place, on first appointments. Also at the time of re-admission.

If calling to book an appointment, your consent will be requested and required to store those minimal personal details on the appointment site 'Square', that is utilized via this website, in order to book the appointment.
The minimal personal information you submit: Will not be shared out or sold to any one or anywhere else on doing so. It is going directly to the Supernurse private duty RN business owner in strict confidence. Information is kept secure, and will be deleted at the time a client chooses to not be a client any longer for what ever the reason may be, on the square website account this uses. The next paragraph applies for a client's personal information, or hard copy demographic and admission data.

All medical documentation is the property of Supernurse Private Duty RN business owner, which is properly securely locked and retained in accordance with the law; and is destroyed in accordance with the law after ten years after care ends, or ten years after a minors eighteenth birthday. Only in a court of law or when legally obligated, would it have to be disclosed. (Source: CNO)
As a Registered Nurse I have a legal duty to maintain strict confidentiality ongoing on patients and their families such as when they are making the appointment or when they are the client's POA. This includes both written, or if verbally, or both. Nothing is disclosed without a client's consent, except when she has a legal duty to do so, or in a court of law when legally obligated to do so.
Also on booking an appointment directly via this website, and Square via the 'booking an appointment', you are allowing and facilitating appointment reminders directly to come to you via email and mobile text message prior to your appointment.
Sharing of personal information: Clients information, only after a verbal or written consent, or both is given by the client or their POA if they are mentally challenged and unable to do so themselves, shared to the Supernurse Private Duty RN business owner and sole proprietor, and will only be shared with the multidisciplinary health care team, that is; the client's doctor if a referral is needed, e.g on noticing an infection, or any other health concern that the clients doctor must be made aware of. It is also for optimum care and safety of the client. It may also include the Pharmacist if e.g. a blister pack is required or if the service provider notices a medication safety concern that needs to be addressed. As a Nurse, there is a legal duty to ensure client safety and to act on it accordingly.
Access to information: Only the patient it concerns, and the owner of Supernurse Private Duty RN business has access to the information that concerns the client, unless the POA is the decision maker due to the client being mentally incapable to do so. The only other time is as stated on this page, when legally obligated to do so. On requesting the information, it will be responded to in a timely manner as per the law.
Consent: Verbal, written, or both, at the point of admission is to be gained from the client, or the POA when the client is incapable to do so; to share with the health care team that is or is to be involved with the client in order to get their needs met, on any health care concerns or referrals to them.
Documentation: Admission and assessments. Any care and treatment. Follow ups. Referrals. Action taken, will always be documented by the owner of Supernurse Private Duty RN in strict confidence, and retained in confidence and with proper record keeping as per this confidentiality policy.
Referrals to other practitioners: The owner of Supernurse Private Duty RN will give the patient; or the POA if the patient is mentally unable to do so, a podiatrist or Chiropododist or related foot practitioners full contact details to book their own appointment. Or via an informed consent by email referral directly, when advocating for the client.
For all other referrals: It will be via the patient's doctor, via a letter that the patient or their POA takes to them. The service provider will make a follow up appointment with the patient, or via the POA when necessary, to read a doctors response and follow up on that.
