Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
This violates privacy, Hipaa and employer policy.
Legally, it should be disclosed to the facility affected. Practically, it depends on whether the nurse intends to report this or not.
Nurse should not have viewed it either, so it may be in best interest not to report, and for this information to be immediately removed from public access.
Please let me know if that is fast and clear.
If it is not the only copy, and remains with facility, and you gave notice, you should not continue to privately keep it. You should remove it from your private property.
Kindly rate me 5 stars.
Not likely based on lack of response. You didnt do it intentionally, and no action has been taken. Take steps now to remove and avoid future issues.
Patient protection is normally a facility issue, in ensuring data is not on private computers, and on separation, returned or removed.
You should not be concerned.
Kindly rate me positively.
thanks in advance.
