  1. Just wondering if anyone has ever been terminated from a breech of confidentiality and what happened with their nursing license?

    I know someone who was. She was terminated for looking up an employee's chart when the employee was not a pt at the time. Nothing happened to her license because she wasn't reported to the BON, but the BON can discipline you for something like that. Not to mention the possible fines if a HIPAA violation is reported officially.
