I was recently at a hospital with a group of nursing students and one of them was dictating into a digital recorder 1) Medical Dx of patient. 2) Rx related to the treatment plan. 3) Lab values on CBC, and CMP. The student did not record any private information like MRN, name, initials, or even room number.
What do you think, was this student in violation of HIPAA?
If so what would you do?
