Page 1 of 1 Privacy and Confidentiality Scenario This scenario is based on a true story and due to increased ubiquitous use of mobile technology more incidents such as this will occur. Nurses must fully understand privacy and confidentiality issues and apply the information to various settings and situations to best advocate for the patient. Working in a busy cardiac cath lab provides many opportunities for possible breaches of confidentiality or privacy. Jennifer works in a cath lab and has noticed mobile technology is encroaching on patient confidentiality and privacy. A few months back they were very busy and several patients were in the holding area awaiting procedures. Jennifer’s coworker , Tim, decided to take a picture of the patients in the holding area and posted it on Facebook to show his friends how busy he was.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
