I am afraid of the potential loss of required security clearance for my job which would result in loss of employment and potential HIPPA violations. Public humiliation to my son and the invasion of our privacy.
Outcome: I am constantly worried about the potential compromise of additonal information from within my phone. I am seeking a monetary resolution to the continuous looming threat of potential loss of employment and benefits after 15+ years, the potential loss of professional license = loss of career, loss of home due to unemployment, loss of personal property etc.
The communication company was going to investigate this and contact me but i have not heard from them.
yes, I am a nurse. No patient's name but a patients phone number, also had pictures of medical equipment and a text to my housekeeper on my home security code.
No . . . however, the phone number stored in my phone was known by my boss because I was unable to connect to the patient, for some reason, due to the blocking of outgoing calls on our phone system. My boss allowed me to use my cell phone to contact the patient. That's one of the potential threats I refering to. If the hospital finds out . . . my boss could potentially deny that she autorized that call.
