Discussion Board

I have 2 discussion board I need them to be written. please make sure when you do the discussion you mark each one of them to know which one. one page for the first discussion and one page for the second. MAKE SURE YOU WRITE YOUR OWN WORDS PLEASE. FIRST DISCUSSION BOARD: Below is an article from a recent headline. This is not an uncommon occurrence. Now, as of the rule changes on September 23, 2013, what is your understanding of how the liability or requirements of the hospital will change? The issue is present whether or not the information is of a stranger or the employee themselves or their children. Do you agree that this is reasonable that if someone works where their children or where they are treated that they should not be allowed to automatically access their own or their children's information? Explain. Lake Health fires several employees over HIPAA violations By Elizabeth Lundblad Posted: 08/09/13, 11:10 AM EDT| Lake Health announced several employees have been terminated for accessing a patient's information in violation of federal patient privacy laws. The breach was discovered in September after a routine audit of electronic medical records showed a single patient's health information had been accessed by multiple employees without authorization, said Gary Robinson, vice president of government and community affairs for Lake Health. "The employees who accessed the records were from a variety of different departments throughout the system," he said. "They were not specific to Lake West or TriPoint. It was a variety of departments, some caregivers and some nonclinical." Records chosen for the regular audits are randomly selected, said Julieann Strogin, Lake Health's manager of advertising and media relations. Strogin and Robinson said they could not give a specific number of employees due to employee confidentiality,and could only confirm that it had been several. "We do not have any evidence that (the information) was shared publicly. However, from our standpoint, just the fact that the record was accessed inappropriately by individuals not involved in the patient's care that's enough for us to take the action we have taken," Robinson said. Lake Health has contacted the family of the patient involved. In regards to the terminated employees, Robinson said Lake Health followed its policy when patient privacy is compromised. He also said Lake Health was not required to turn information over to legal authorities. Enacted in 1996, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act prohibits health care providers from releasing patient information to non-authorized parties. "HIPAA protects their clinical information and also pertains to any information we have on them, like medical history," Robinson said. When the breach was discovered in September, Lake Health conducted an internal investigation and interviewed the employees who accessed the information. "They did not provide any information that would suggest they needed to be on that medical record," Robinson said. The incident in September follows another violation of HIPAA by a single employee earlier in the year. That person was also terminated. Following that incident Lake Health had all team members review the systems' HIPAA privacy policy, Robinson added. Lake Health is again reviewing the policy with team members. Team members are required to sign off each year as part of mandatory training and review of the HIPAA privacy policy, Strogin said. "Patient privacy is the bedrock of what we do," Robinson said. "If patients don't feel comfortable giving us information, it compromises us giving them the best care. We take patient privacy extremely seriously and we won't tolerate a breach of a patient's privacy." SECOND DISCUSSION BOARD: Below is an excerpt from an article related to end of life issues. The death of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, a former pathologist who helped dozens of terminally ill people die with a suicide machine, has renewed a national debate on end-of-life issues that never went away completely, even after Kevorkian was sentenced to prison in 1999. In fact, a Gallup poll in May found that physician-assisted suicide remains the most polarized moral issue in the country, with 45 percent saying it is morally acceptable and 48 percent saying it is morally wrong. And the ferocity of the so-called “death panels” controversy during the health care reform debate remains so potent that in January the Obama administration reversed course on end-of-life counseling regulations due to concerns that passing the regulations would rekindle the furor. The stakes are high, morally, psychologically and economically. Caring for people in the final stages of life is one of the most expensive aspects of the nation’s health care system, accounting for as much as one-third of all health care costs, and about 30 percent of Medicare expenditures come in the last year of a patient’s life. Moreover, modern medicine is able to keep human beings — or at least their bodies — alive for increasingly long periods, often in what is known as a “persistent vegetative state,” or PVS. This comes as the nation’s population continues to grow grayer, with the responsibility of providing for the terminally ill falling on the next generation, and on strained state and federal budgets. Ethicists also raise questions as to what is the moral use of limited health care resources — on helping the dying or saving the living. Given what you have read about the numerous legal issues surrounding the end of life, it is your turn to determine the answer to this question on the best use of limited resources in health care. You must remain within legal boundries - not rely simply on emotional arguments - even if your option isn't law currently - how would you argue to make it legal. YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO FINISH THIS THANK YOU :)
