HIPAA and Nursing Challenges - page 2

HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, affects all nurses in how we obtain and handle patient information. As patient confidentiality is a sacred trust, it is the duty of the Nurse to protect the integrity of the nurse-patient relationship. Come here to learn strategies on how to communicate with family members who demand information, how to check yourself as well as fellow colleagues and ensure accountability, discuss what is and is not acceptable information to release, and/or how to avoid disclosure pitfalls.
