      False

    It doesn't hurt anyone's privacy if I share information about patients as long as the post is only accessed by the person I send it to, and they are someone I trust.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    It is okay to openly discuss a patient with a colleague on the care team as long as the patient is referred to by a nickname, or identified by a room number, or diagnosis or condition instead of their actual name.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Sharing even what seems like anonymous information like a nickname can be a breach of privacy, as someone with enough detail may be able to identify the patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    I accidentally posted a picture from work that showed a patient's information in the background. I deleted it right away from my social media page, so there is no way anyone can see it. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Once you post an image or information to the internet it is then hosted on a server and will always be able to be discovered in a court of law. If someone saw the information, they could also have copied it or shared it with another website before you deleted it.

    Using Social Media and Electronic media in a way that compromises patient privacy rarely results in anything more than a brief reprimand. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A recent article shows over 45 cases where Nursing Home and Assisted living staff were found guilty of sharing patient information, videos, or photos on social media platforms. The consequences of the violations run from being listed on Government Inspection Reports, termination of employment, even to criminal charges.
