Shred the documents or place them in a health insurance portability and accountability act (hipaa) trash container.-rationale: kardexes, care plans, and other client documents contain confidential client information. the nurse should shred them or place them in a special hipaa container for proper disposal. regular garbage isnt secure and isnt an appropriate place to dispose of documents containing a clients name and information. leaving the documents at the nurses station may allow others to view them. it isnt necessary to place the nursing kardex and care plan in the clients chart when the nurse has finished using them.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: management of carecognitive level: applicationreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 256.
