Discussions between the nurse and students, family members, or staff are private.  All are welcome to talk openly about themselves, their health, or questions that they may have.  The information is not shared with other people without permission.  The only exception is if someone may be in danger.  If a person prefers a more private place to talk, those arrangements will be made.  Student medical records are confidential, as well.  They are not released without parental consent.  Written parental authorization is required for the school to obtain medical records from outside sources.
