Next, I would arrange meeting with other provider to discuss Stephanie’s action related to Mrs. Smith case. I would definitely discuss with Stephanie regarding her job duty & her current position with what she can do & don’t. I would provide her education based on research to teach her how this can be very serious this could be & how it affect provider license & patient health.It might be difficult for Stephanie to underst& the low& regulation when it comes to prescription or patient health information but working in office Stephanie should be thought of legal rules & regulation with HIPPA law to prevent further incident. Review the office policies & procedure to make sure that all healthcare member work in office knows the policy. The Board was recently informed that more than one Illinoispharmacy has received a fraudulent telephone call from someone claiming to be an inspector representing the Illinois Board of Pharmacy. The callers asked for information regarding the pharmacy’s owner in order to mail out information about new issues & policies. This is one of the examples that could jeopardize healthcareprovider license for life. There are law that can put the license to revoke, prohibition or suspension as a result of disciplinary action by state board. According
to Stevenson, office policies, procedures, records, forms, systems, supplies, equient, & furnishings are but vehicles to reach the goal of professional health care.

The assistant should be alert that systems originally designed to aid the practice, in time & habitual use, have a tendency to dictate to the creators of the systems. The patient is always more important than any procedure.Bergmo, T. S., Kummervold, P. E., Gammon, D., & Dahl, L. B. (2015).

Stephanie broke professional ethics by including another practitioner’s name as the prescriber instead of hers. Moreover, she did not consult with another nurse practitioner or the general physician about the patient’s concerns. According to the National Commission on Correctional HealthCare (2011), it is also inappropriate to prescribe drugs without appropriate investigation of a patient’s condition since
