The nurse talks with  the patient having clear goal in mind. Many a times the moment a nurse asks  the question. The nurse takes  the history  of  patient and helps him to talk about his sickness. During this phase the nurse discusses about confidentiality of  the information shared by  the patient with the nurse during the therapeutic relationship. If  the information does not harm the patient or others she will not share the information with anybody. Otherwise it needs to be informed  to the psychiatristlsocial worker.
