    HIPAA violation and future employment opportunities

    Not to sound nieve but what benefit would an attorney be in the situation? I am not trying to dispute the claim or save my current job. I cannot imagine this is something that would land jail time or anything of that nature. From what I have read, once the compliance officer contacts the individual whose info was accessed and they claim no harm has been done then the investigation more or less stops. Of course I know this gets reported somewhere but can't imagine this is a case where my license could be on the line.
  2. Hi, I am currently under iinvestigation for a HIPAA violation at my facility. This was a one time occurrence, I had a friend in the hospital which I work at whom I hadn't heard from and was worried about so I quickly clicked her chart one night to ensure she was ok since I hadn't heard from her. She is aware I did this, this isn't anything I was trying to hide from her. (Please no nasty comments, as I've seen many people like to leave). I know what I did was wrong and have learned from this. I am currently 7 months pregnant and the stress this has been causing me is unmeasurable. My question is, are all HIPAA violations reported to the board or some entity that is made public knowledge for future employers to find? I'm asking because I am considering resigning before they terminate me, since I am almost certain that is going to be the outcome. I feel since it was such a small scale violation it won't be reported, however I haven't been able to find any information on this online. Resigning always seems the better option, especially if this violation won't be made public for anyone to find out. Thanks!

    Florida RN looking to relocate to Denver

    So I won't have the BSN yet, with the track I'm on I'll be set to get it by December 2018. I do have a bachelors degree just not in nursing. I know a previous poster said to wat until I have the BSN to apply, but issue is my current lease is up in July 2018 and month to month in south Florida just isn't realistic for me due to the crazy cost of rent. So just a little nervous about finding something

    Florida RN looking to relocate to Denver

    kcurry90 Notoriously low meaning lower than Florida? Everything I've seen online shows Colorado paying higher than Florida. Although maybe Denver is just lower than the state average? Cost of living in south Florida is pretty outrageous too, so that won't come as much of a shock for me unfortunately.

  6. Hi all, I am an RN working in South Florida on a pediatric hematology/oncology floor at a children's hospital. I have been thinking about relocating to the Denver area summer 2018. By the time I relocate I will have 2 years RN experience and will be 4 months from getting my BSN (currently enrolled in an online bridge program). I am realy just wondering what the job market is like in that area and what the pay is like? I would like to stay in pediatrics or at least remain in oncology. I'm currently making $26/hr plus my night shift differential. Although I would like to be days if I moved as I am switching to days at my current job in the next couple months. Any info is much appreciated!! :)
