Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
safe discharge is a situation that begins when a patient reaches the emergency area in the hospital for a nurse assessment and ends when the patients are done with treatment and a nurse has assessed their situation.
The legal ramifications associated with safe discharge involve the ethical rights of the patient such as a breach of confidentiality by a nurse, the duty of a nurse to report any advances in the illness of the patient and a duty to warn the patient on what they should or should not do.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
