Monday my manager called me and said HR and privacy managers wanted to speak to me and I as like for what. I figured maybe when I had a patient two days prior I went back through her chart to see if I had charted everything correctly since we switched bloods transfusions from paperwork to computers now.
So so I spoke with them yesterday. Mind you I started in April. They said I accessed two charts, and they had snap shots of these two peoples charts labs, notes vitals etc and I was like whoa, no those people aren't familiar to me I have no idea who they are. it looked like someone spent two hours going through these two peoples charts.
The third person I am guilty of. In April I first started and didn't know epic didn't train on the modules yet. I was just clicking on buttons. A space bar popped up. So on auto pilot i typed in my exes name and was like nope and I backed out. Less than 30 seconds.
Well my ex is pretty much a sociopath and he's doing everything he can to just destroy me like literally. So they brought up i looked at his chart. Only his demographics page. I froze I didn't want them to know my business and if I told them I would've broke down crying from what I've gone through in. The last year with him I froze and lied and said I didn't know him. I denied it I didn't know what to say. Long story short my ex is trying to make my life miserable. One of the privacy managers was like well we heard you know this person. Which it was my exes name. I knew right then my ex called. They didn't suspend me they said we will call you tomorrow. I just didn't feel comfortable telling ppl i barely know my personal business
I drove home home crying I felt so guilty. I can't lie. So I called the privacy manager left her a message then called my boss and asked if I could come in today I wanted to speak to her. I wanted to tell her the entire truth. Like how my ex is harassing me trying to put me in jail etc I met with them and told them the truth and said I love working here but if I have to resign I will. They said wel out investigation isn't done we are still looking. I said I'm not worried I know hippa I did make a mistake I'm sorry for lying. When I mentioned resignation they ignored me. At the end of the meeting I asked so if you go through my epic and find me clear what could happen that I opened my exes file. He said possible termination. â˜¹ï¸ Mind u I never clicked on anything of his. But my manager was like until pending investigation is through we have to suspend you.
What i I did was wrong. I accept responsibility. I wish I could stop my exes harassment. He's doing this in retaliation because I opened a new account at a bank. Well his sister started working there. I didn't know. I walked in and she must've saw me and locked the door I was so embarrassed once I realized it was her I left quickly. My friend who works for a different branch prompted me a to call customer service and see if she accessed my account. I said no no it's ok. Then a week later I was curious. And she did. Three times without my authorization So I text her and asked her nicely not look into my personal info and I told her that I was given the option to report her and I chose not to. Because it could lead to her termination. She made a rude comment and I left it alone. And now my ex finds out where I work and calls. ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
