    Hospitals in Maryland with a strong and friendly community?

    I'm interested in oncology, med surg, and pediatrics. I've been applying and I have interviews coming up. I've seen a lot of cardiac and psych positions for new grads. I didn't enjoy the cardiac unit, and even though I love psych I would prefer my first year to be on a med surg/oncology unit just to get a broad range of experience, and honestly I thoroughly enjoy med surg even though it has a bad reputation.

    Thanks for responding. I've heard great things about mercy from many people even though they aren't as recognized as John Hopkins or University of Maryland. Mercy hasn't had new grad positions available which is unfortunate. I've seen two available in the last month but they are in specialties I'm not interested in. I'll keel checking and congrats on being a new grad as well.
  3. Hello everyone, I've recently passed my nclex and I'm in the process of searching for a job. One of the most important aspects for me is working at a hospital that has a friendly staff full of team players. I completed clinical rotations at several hospitals in another state before moving to Maryland. Some clinical sites were painful because they lacked any sense of community, and others were so fulfilling because the staff cared about their patients as well as each other. which hospitals would you'll say has a strong community in Maryland? Specifically the Baltimore area?

    Did my friend violate hipaa?

    I guess we're both wrong because I swore cafe talk was a hipaa violation. Even if it's just something like "my patients had copd or a stroke." I do see it now as more of a professional issue now though. Her reasoning for her stance was that a stroke or copd wasn't in the patient identifiers outlined by hipaa but it still crosses professional boundaries as you said. edit: in response to jkl33, I forgot to quote

    Did my friend violate hipaa?

    I'm so sorry, wasn't my intention please forgive me. I was just trying to teach my friend about proper etiquette when she starts clinical. She has this idea that as long as it's vague it's fine even in the cafeteria or elevator. I apologize again, I'm new here so I'll learn better forum etiquette along with my friend learning about professional etiquette only reason why I did this was to paint a scenario as it actually happens because this kind of thing is very common among nursing students

    Did my friend violate hipaa?

    No responses? Lol,This was a scenario I actually made up because I was debating this scenario with my friend. She believes you could speak vaguely as long as you leave out identifiers and I thought you weren't suppose to mention anything at all ever, unless it's with the patients team. Am I right or her? Is a diagnosis like copd, stroke or heart disease a identifier? Would a location like elevator or cafeteria change the scenario

    Did my friend violate hipaa?

    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.
