From the pet peeve files...

  1. Okay. It's HIPAA, not HIPPA. Please, if you're going to cite it, know what you're citing.

    (If you work in school nursing, you're under FERPA rules for health information. The medical practices you liaise with are still under HIPAA rules, which aren't identical, so you're navigating two sets of obstacles. Oh joy.)

    Thank you. Also a huge pet peeve of mine. Particularly when nurses make that mistake.

    It would have been deliciously wonderful if this said "Moved to HIPPA forum".

    Sorry for the stupid question...I'm not a school nurse. What on earth is FERPA?

    FERPA is the HIPAA of education. Protecting student's privacy.
