- Sep 26, '11 by Bruce_WayneIt might not be a hippa violation, but I know that at my school I'd be a violation for carrying an electronic device that's capable of recording. In my programs students aren't allowed to carry anything that records at all.
- Sep 27, '11 by michele742I am not a nurse...yet...but I am a medical transcriptionist and I am held to HIPAA rules/regulations. I send emails to doctors, notes to technologists, etc., and the only information I am not allowed to put on the correspondence is the patient's name, DOB...identifiable information. As long as the nursing student left this information out, it would not be a HIPAA violation...like someone else said, maybe a 'program/school' violation?
