Are these violations?

  1. Are these HIPAA violations?

    1) A hospital intern has been told to use his supervisor's username and password to access PHI and input comments.

    2) A home hospice patient's wife invites their hospice volunteer to bring his daughter to visit; the daughter meets the patient.

    Welcome to AN! The largest online nursing community.

    We are happy to help with homework but we will not do it for you. Deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills are critical to the nursing profession. Homework is is to teach you how to be the detective and find the answers yourself for you will learn much more valuable information that way than someone doing it for you.

    Tell me what you have so far and what you thinik and why and we will lead you to the path you need.

    There is a great article by one of our contributor and a co-supporter of the students GrnTea......for you may find your answer there.
