    Explanation
    Regardless of Brad Pitt's fame, Becky is not allowed to look into his medical record unless she is directly involved in his care. Patient privacy is a fundamental principle in healthcare, and unauthorized access to medical records is a violation of patient confidentiality. It is important for healthcare professionals to respect and uphold patient privacy rights, regardless of the individual's celebrity status.

    The answer is "No, you are not allowed to use your employee access to look at your own medical record." This is because accessing one's own medical record using employee access may violate privacy and confidentiality policies. It is important to maintain the integrity and security of medical records, and allowing employees to access their own records using their employee access can lead to potential breaches or misuse of sensitive information.

The locked bin provides an added layer of security compared to regular garbage or recycling bins, reducing the risk of potential data breaches or privacy violations.

    A 14 year old patient comes in for a pregnancy test. The patient’s mother calls the clinic, she didn’t know her daughter was going in for care and wants information about why her child is there. Can you tell the mother why the patient is being seen?

    • A.

      Yes, the patient is still a child and the mother has the right to know.

    • B.

      No, 14 year olds have the right to choose if reproductive information is shared with family.

    Correct Answer
    B. No, 14 year olds have the right to choose if reproductive information is shared with family.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No, 14 year olds have the right to choose if reproductive information is shared with family." In many places, minors have the right to confidentiality when it comes to reproductive health services. This means that healthcare providers are legally obligated to keep their patients' information private, even from their parents or guardians, unless there are specific circumstances where the minor's safety is at risk. Therefore, the mother does not have the right to know why her child is being seen without the patient's consent.

    • B.

      No, only managers are required to report privacy breaches.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, as a staff member, Chris is required to report all privacy breaches.
    Explanation
    As a staff member, Chris is required to report all privacy breaches, including his co-worker looking at her own medical record in Allscripts. This is because maintaining patient privacy and confidentiality is a crucial aspect of healthcare, and any breach of privacy, regardless of the person involved, should be reported to ensure the protection of patient information.

    Dana wants to send flowers to her co-worker for his birthday. Is Dana allowed to get her co-worker’s address from a Columbia Medical Associates system?

    • A.

      Yes, she knows the co-worker would like the flowers and wouldn’t have a problem with her looking up that information.

    • B.

      No, Columbia Medical Associates information should only be used for business purposes.

    Correct Answer
    B. No, Columbia Medical Associates information should only be used for business purposes.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No, Columbia Medical Associates information should only be used for business purposes." This answer is based on the principle that accessing personal information from a company's system should only be done for legitimate business reasons. In this case, Dana wanting to send flowers to her co-worker's birthday does not qualify as a business purpose, so it would be inappropriate for her to retrieve the co-worker's address from the Columbia Medical Associates system.
