I know shadowing has become a pretty standard step along the way to a career in nurse anesthesia. I think HIPPA may impact the future of these opportunities.
The hospital where I used to work is no longer permitting any non-employees to shadow due to HIPPA. And my alma mater program no longer can take applicants into the OR during interviews, because of HIPPA.
Just wondering if this is happening elsewhere yet, and what you guys think about it.

HIPAA, not HIPPA
All any institution has to do is have pts sign a consent saying that students, employees or orientees may be present during procedures for learning purposes.
Yep, that is what they do for employees and students in affiliated programs. But there is no mechanism for someone outside the system. Maybe other places are willing to get consents for "outsiders", but not around here.
