Hello all new poster here, I have a quick question.
Last week my classmates and I were talking about our day. We were all in different sections of the hospital.
anyway another classmate asked my friend how was her day because she wasn't speaking. My friend said; "my day is going fine, the unit isn't what I expected though. I thought it would be like T.V with people running around panicking." Lol...
anyway my friend then said "most of the patients there are for neuro problems, my patients had strokes."
thats all my friend said, a minute or so later she noticed that a hospital employee seemed to be listening into the conversation. She said the woman he "devious eyes" lol
my friend is paranoid, so I'm trying to get advice to calm her down. Did she violate hipaa? Can she get in trouble for saying something as vague as she did because she said it in the cafeteria? She's normally very quiet and hardly says a word but she had a slip. She thinks that woman is going to report her.
