Satisfactory Essays
1. You notice the chart of the elderly man who lives across the street from you sitting out on the counter of the nurses station. You are very concerned about him, but aren't going to be the nurse taking care of him. How should you handle this situation and why? If he wasn’t going to be my patient then I would not look at the chart because his information should be private confidential and only personnel working directly with his case should have access to his chart. Looking at the chart would be a HIPPA violation. 2. You are on duty in the ER when a patient who has been in a serious car accident is brought in by ambulance. You answer the telephone, and the person on the other end asks for information about the victim of the car accident.
