      Outlook e-mail.

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. Columbia Medial Associates has no appropriate electronic forms of messaging patients.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Columbia Medical Associates has no appropriate electronic forms of messaging patients."

      No, you are not allowed to use your employee access to look at your own medical record.

    Correct Answer
    B. No, you are not allowed to use your employee access to look at your own medical record.
    Explanation
    Access to medical records is typically restricted to authorized healthcare professionals who have a legitimate need to view the information for patient care purposes.

      In the locked paper confidential waste bin.

    • B.

    • D.

      In the recycling bin with all the other plastic recyclables

    Correct Answer
    A. In the locked paper confidential waste bin.
    Explanation
    Patient labels containing personal information should be disposed of in the locked paper confidential waste bin. This bin is specifically designed for confidential documents and ensures that sensitive information is securely disposed of. This helps to protect patient privacy and prevent unauthorized access to personal data. Disposing of the labels in the garbage or recycling bin could potentially lead to the information being accessed by unauthorized individuals, which could result in privacy breaches or identity theft. The special confidential waste bin for non-paper items may not be suitable for disposing of labels as they are typically made of paper.

    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
    In many jurisdictions, minors who are 14 years old or older have the right to confidentiality regarding their reproductive health information. This means that healthcare providers are not allowed to share this information with their parents or guardians without the minor's consent. Therefore, the mother does not have the right to know why her child is being seen for a pregnancy test unless the patient gives permission to disclose this information.

    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 because it is important to maintain the confidentiality of medical records. Regardless of the person involved, any breach of privacy should be reported to ensure that appropriate actions can be taken to address the issue and prevent further breaches. This helps to protect the privacy and rights of patients and maintain the trust and integrity of the healthcare system.

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above.
    Explanation
    All of the given ways can support password security. Choosing a password that is hard to guess, including numbers, letters, and special characters makes it more difficult for others to crack the password. Not writing down passwords prevents them from being easily accessible to others. Changing the password immediately if there is a suspicion of inappropriate access helps to maintain security. Never sharing or asking to share passwords with others ensures that only authorized individuals have access to the account. Therefore, all of these practices contribute to enhancing password security.
