    Explanation
    Privacy, confidentiality, and electronic security are important concepts to hospitals because they allow patients to feel comfortable sharing information with their caregivers. This is crucial for effective healthcare as patients need to trust that their personal information will be kept confidential. Additionally, these concepts allow hospitals to demonstrate their commitment to protecting patient privacy and security, which is essential for maintaining the trust of patients and the public. Lastly, privacy, confidentiality, and electronic security enable hospitals to provide excellent patient care by ensuring that sensitive information is protected and only accessible to authorized individuals.

    Which of the following examples is NOT a common work practice that protects the confidentiality of patient information?

    • A.

      Keeping records locked when not in use

    • B.

      Limiting the number of visitors who can see a patient

    • C.

      Limiting the number of people who can look at patient records

    • D.

      Keeping the computer systems logged out of patient information systems when not in use

    Correct Answer
    B. Limiting the number of visitors who can see a patient
    Explanation
    Limiting the number of visitors who can see a patient does not directly protect the confidentiality of patient information. While it may indirectly contribute to privacy by reducing the number of individuals who have access to the patient, it does not specifically address the protection of patient records or computer systems that contain patient information. The other options mentioned, such as keeping records locked, limiting access to patient records, and logging out of patient information systems, directly address the protection of patient information and are common work practices to maintain confidentiality.

      Right to restrict their informaton

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Right to receive a user ID and password for all electronic applications in which their information is stored
    Explanation
    The right to receive a user ID and password for all electronic applications in which their information is stored is not a patient's right under HIPAA. HIPAA grants patients the right to access their information, the right to restrict their information, and the right to amend their information. However, it does not specifically provide the right to receive a user ID and password for electronic applications.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it states that all patient requests for restrictions or amendments must be forwarded immediately to the hospital's privacy/patient relations office. This implies that the hospital has a specific office or department dedicated to handling patient requests related to privacy and amendments. By forwarding these requests promptly, the hospital ensures that they are addressed in a timely manner and that patients' rights and privacy are respected.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations are designed to protect the privacy and security of patients' health information. These regulations establish federal rights for patients, ensuring that their protected health information is kept confidential and secure. By implementing these regulations, patients have the right to control who has access to their health information and how it is used. Therefore, the statement that the HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations give patients federal rights concerning their protected health information is true.

Calling the hospital's privacy and/or patient relations hotline allows for immediate reporting and assistance. Calling or stopping by the hospital's privacy and/or patient relations office provides a more personal and direct approach. Talking to a supervisor ensures that the issue is addressed within the organization. Having all of these options available allows individuals to choose the method that is most convenient and comfortable for them to report any violations.
