The only ethical reason to take such a photo would be by police or investigators who brought an unknown person to a facility. There is exactly zero valid reason for the actions of the CNA.
It's HIPAA health insurance portability and accountability act. And yes HIPAA privacy rule survives death with only legal & public health exceptions (such as criminal death or death from a reportable communicable disease)
Refunds are for students who withdraw before school starts.
Incomplete is not for students that fail the same clinical skills exam twice.
I'm stuck on enema bag forced to work as primary IV. Way to kill someone.
That's not true in every state. In California, they're actually two separate boards. I'm not sure where the OP is located, though.
In any case, I agree that it's not going away. Even in California, with separate boards, application instructions state: Although we are making every effort to process cases as quickly as possible, if you have previous criminal conviction(s) and/or discipline on another health license it will take longer to review your application.
That sounds like these things are reviewed on a case by case basis which may be why the OP is unable to get a firm answer.
OP, you may not get your answer until AFTER you graduate and AFTER you apply for a license.
Just say no. Not a HIPAA issue but may violate hospital policy. Ignore requests.
Have you found out about your particular states safe harbor rules yet?
Ask your instructors for guidance. Use the practice exams and the targeted study plan produced after you take the practice test.
Hi, I passed NCLEX 2009 (California) but wasnt able to get SSN. Any ideas on how to have SSN? I'm residing here in the Philippines by the way.
I'm not sure what state you live in- but in PA, you can qualify for Medicaid if you make under X-amount in the last month. I have insurance through my parents bur no one in PA accepts it because it is Wisconsin insurance. I am going to wait until I start school and apply for Medicaid so I can actually be seen somewhere and not pay out the A**! I would consider looking at the Medicaid options in your state. I would apply now, but I make too much money
Good Luck to you!!
Is it legal to sell ATI ebook online though? If you buy the whole package including the Hardcover book?
I guess you could use a headlamp
I would be concerned if the room is so dark you can't see where you're walking, that's a safety hazard for you, and that's not ok. The patient is at the hospital because he needs care, which you can't give him if you can't see what the hell you are doing, or trip over the trashcan and break your leg on the way to his bedside
Hello there! I am actually a fellow nursing student. This is, in fact, a HIPPA violation sadly. Even though it is you patient file, they are still the hospitals records and you should only access them through your patient accessibility. I know this seems silly, but it's just the law; however, I'm sure that if all you were doing was quickly glancing over it, then I'm sure everything is fine. I'm not sure how strict your program is, but mine would never know I logged in to see my information unless they went looking for it under suspicion, but reporting it to your instructor is a good idea. I wouldn't fret too much over this!
Possibly bonus at hospital but you can also subcontract. If you can translate accurately AND interpret you can work for a language line, international translation services or even the courts. Medical interpreters and translators are highly valued if credentialed.
Review your BON's practices for filing safe harbor. If you really feel unsafe, follow those practices.
If you live at home and you have no income, you should be able to qualify for state medicaid.
Schools usually offer insurance because they usually require it for their students. It's usually not a great plan but if you don't really need anything, it may be sufficient for you.
Also if you lose your health insurance because you resign your position, you'll be eligible to continue it through COBRA.
