I'm a nursing student and I'm worried about violating HIPAA. During clinical, I keep a sheet going with info on all my patients. How can I know which patient is which on that sheet without violating their privacy? (initials? Room number?) If I put their names down then lost the sheet... major violation!
Also, if I'm working on a case study to turn in to my instructor, how can I refer to my patient?
Any citations/websites/URLs to answers would be very helpful!
