As health care providers, we all know that HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is important and that patient privacy is a priority. But let's face it: many health professionals inadvertently violate HIPAA rules every day and we could all use a refresher.
UNLV students and staff from the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas put together a short video called "HIPAA Happens" to highlights scenarios where nurses violate HIPAA without even realizing it.
The video was created by UNLV nursing instructor Deanna St. Cyr and directed by UNLV film school graduate and simulation technician Jonathan Sturak. Watch "HIPAA Happens".
