This new webinar goes over the specific pitfalls of HIPAA violations and confidentiality breaches by nurses in the health professions. This webinar gathers and summarizes nursing guidelines and rules from recognized national nursing organizations as well as state boards of nursing.

This webinar focus on the ways nurses and other health care professionals violate HIPAA confidentiality via social media. Taking real-life disciplinary actions from state boards of nursing and other licensure boards, this informative webinar examines actual cases from those state licensure boards. Disciplinary actions against nurses will be covered from actual, contested cases.

Standards and guidelines from national organizations will be reviewed - all with the goal of preventative action so as to help nurses and other health care professionals stay out of trouble.
Finally, while state licensure board disciplinary action is one consequence of a privacy breach, employment policies provide the underlying basis for firing a nurse or health care practitioner. Examples of core rules for employment policies and "dos and don'ts" in an employment setting will cover this topic.

Ten minutes will be reserved for Q and A at the end of the webinar, and e-mail questions may be submitted to the presenter.
