A female patient, 18 years old, being treated for an acute chest infection, reports to you that she is pregnant but does not want her mother to know

You are the nurse on a medical unit. A female patient, 18 years old, being treated for an acute chest infection, reports to you that she is pregnant but does not want her mother (who visits her daily) or the rest of the staff in the department to know. She says she is bleeding per vaginam (PV) but that it is “not serious”; she “got through a similar problem two years ago.” Her current blood loss “contains a few clots, but nothing to worry about.” She states, “I just thought I would share this information with you as you seem such a friendly student nurse.” She further remarks, “You can’t say much to some of these other staff about your personal issues, because only yesterday I heard the staff nurse discussing with the sister the fact that a fellow patient, Mr. Jarrett, has HIV and shouldn’t be touched if it can be helped.” Your final thought as the patient finishes speaking to you is how pale she looks.

After reading the case scenario, consider your duty of care regarding in a maximum of up to three paragraphs:
The law (legal responsibility)
The profession (professional responsibility)
Ethics (ethical responsibility)
Your values and morals (personal beliefs about the situation, if different than the previous)
