    Confidentiality is basic to the maintenance of professional ethics and community respect. Clients act in good faith, expecting their circumstances and personal matters to remain confidential. We are obligated by law and ethics to maintain confidentiality.

    The following information is presented to provide guidelines concerning confidentiality.

    1. Information and details about a client may be discussed among Bountiful Basket programs for clinical purposes only. That is, cases may be discussed in staffing, supervisory and clinical meetings in order that cases may be more appropriately managed.
    2. No identifying information about a client (name, address) should be revealed except within Bountiful Basket.
    3. Records kept on clients are used only for case management and not for general perusal. Other agencies requesting the records of a given client must obtain a release of information from the client. In no case are records automatically sent to another person or agency without first receiving this release of information from the client or legal guardian.
    4. Discussing the details of a case outside Bountiful Basket even though names and addresses are not revealed is a breach of confidentiality.
    5. Confidentiality must be maintained even when a case has been made public through the news media.
    6. Volunteers will have access to client information only as authorized by staff. All volunteers will follow the confidentiality policy as outlined.

    I, the undersigned, understand and agree to the above policy, and am aware that any breach of confidentiality warrants reprimand and/or dismissal.
