Any health care professional has an obligation first and foremost to maintain patient confidentiality. I tend to do the following:- try and get the patient to the phone and allow them to speak to the caller directly OR speak to the patient and try and get consent to give information to the caller claiming to be her son (but explain to the patient that I cannot confirm it) OR advise the caller that the patient has "had a pleasent morning and is currently stable" but that any other more specific information can only be discussed in person. An alternative is to call the son back when Identity and consent to discuss the patient with him has been obtained.
Call medics; have the person drink milk; try to induce vomitting.
