Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.
Can you tell me a bit more about the situation you are dealing with?
What I would consider to be a HIPAA violation from a year ago. It was unintentional and occurred in relation to my job in Hospital IT. I was suspended without pay for 3 days, but I didn't tell them the whole story. I uploaded patient info to two cloud services a year ago in order to get my job done. They only know about one, and not the other. They could find out about the 2nd. Both occurred on the same day. This happened a year ago. I'm obsessing about it.
Thank you very much for the positive rating and bonus! I appreciate it very much. I hope your situation works out for you. If I can help again in any way, please let me know.
I spoke with my lawyer. He said to look for a new job. Not so easy in today's economy. But you're right, I do take my job very seriously and I am a very honest person. I'm thinking about talking with HR and what you said. I logged into LinkedIn and changed a few things. Even doing that helped me to feel a little better.
I also like the company I work for and the people I work with. Losing this job would mean a lot to me--more than just the money.
Maybe I'll get to keep it yet.
Thanks again, Kate.
The economy is not good and I understand your feelings about trying to find a new job. But having it as a backup plan is going to make what you need to do in your present job a bit easier so you have a good plan. Hopefully, your current employer will work with you and help you put this behind you.
My best to you,Kate
