Wow..There really is something wrong with me..174 people who I would guess are nurses have looked at my post and two have commented.
AN is public. You have no way of knowing if those views are registered members, bots, general public, or Bigfoot.
No offense to anyone but it leads me to believe that 172 are texting..what has become of nursing?
You know what happens when you assume, right? Additionally, no one is required to respond. This is a social media platform with voluntary participation. There may be some who have no input to provide or have no desire to provide input.
Doctors should know better as well. If you have the time to text you can call. Its just lazy and huge HIPPA violation...Oh well
Texting, if done appropriately (encrypted app), can actually reduce errors- written vs verbal, and the encryption would take care of the HIPAA concern. My facility has an entire mobile setup to allow texting, recording of images, and several other technological advances. Also, It's HIPAA, not HIPPA. If you're going to lambaste people, at least use the correct acronym.
