Our next topic is confidentiality. Your first thought probably is of HIPAA - that is probably what should come to mind. This week's challenge asks you to write about your own experiences with confidential medical information - in the ED or elsewhere.
Write a personal vignette of a time when you or someone else on the care team breached or almost breached a patient's right to confidentiality. Some things to write about include: What was the situation? Did you or anyone else do anything about it? How might this be avoided in the future?
I'll start off with one of my own stories in the first comment.
