I did the NBME2 a couple of days ago and came across the question that goes something like this:
45 Y.O.M comes in blah blah blah...was diagnosed with gonorrhea and addmitted to extra marital affairs. The patient goes onto say that he did not want his wife to know. The guys wife calls a day or two later and she wants to know why he had come into the office to see you. What do you say?? The options where something like this
a) "you should set up marriage counciling"
b) " I can not disscuss the nature of the visit without your husbands permission"
c) " You should schedule a GYN appointment"
d) " you should ask your husband if he has been having an affair"
If i remember correctly that was it...at any rate, the the answers that i pulled off of this forrum said that the answer to this Q is choice B. I thought by law we are required to contact a spouse if your patient has an infectious disease that could be passed on to the spouse. Could someone please set me straight on this?? Thanks a million!! And continued luck with everyones studies!!!!!
