Quote from GingerSue
This nurse had been going into files of people with whom she had personal connections, not professional reasons, so they fired her. She knows that she isn't supposed to violate patients' right to confidentiality. So, I'm thinking that her employer was right to fire her.
Can this woman hear herself?
She spent the entire interview blaming other persons and or basically saying other healthcare workers do the same thing she's accused of so she shouldn't be punished.
In the interview it states 142 incidents, but the news media report gives another number:
During the interview the nurse claims there is "no privacy" in said hospital's ER in that patients are out in open wards, hallways etc and thus anyone can overhear what is being said to them. Regarding a patient who was also a healthcare worker that was taken to the ER, this woman claims she *had* to access those records because information was needed but she wasn't on the list of staff assigned to the case.
It get's better.
Next the woman claims she accessed the records of her ex-husband because a judge wanted her to provide information. When asked by the reporter why she simply didn't refuse to comply and state the reason why, she says "oh I was so overwhelmed.. I just did it".
And so it goes.
Sorry the woman is simply a hot mess IMHO, and had start better thinking of better stories for her defence if she wants a hope of getting her job back and or keeping her license.
