Prepare a 2-page interprofessional staff update on HIPAA and appropriate social media use in health care. As you begin to consider the assessment, it would be an excellent choice to complete the Breach of Protected Health Information (PHI) activity. The w

I need an explanation for this Nursing question to help me study.


In this assessment, assume you are a nurse in an acute care, community, school, nursing home, or other health care

setting. Before your shift begins, you scroll through Facebook and notice that a coworker has posted a photo of

herself and a patient on Facebook. The post states, “I am so happy Jane is feeling better. She is just the best patient

I’ve ever had, and I am excited that she is on the road to recovery.”

You have recently completed your annual continuing education requirements at work and realize this is a breach of

your organization’s social media policy. Your organization requires employees to immediately report such breaches

to the privacy officer to ensure the post is removed immediately and that the nurse responsible receives appropriate

cYoorur efoctlliovew aacptpiorno.priate organizational protocols and report the breach to the privacy officer. The privacy officer takes

swift action to remove the post. Due to the severity of the breach, the organization terminates the nurse.

Based on this incident’s severity, your organization has established a task force with two main goals:

Educate staff on HIPAA and appropriate social media use in health care.

Prevent confidentiality, security, and privacy breaches.

The task force has been charged with creating a series of interprofessional staff updates on the following topics:

Social media best practices.

What not to do: Social media.

Social media risks to patient information.

Steps to take if a breach occurs.

You are asked to select one of the topics, or a combination of several topics, and create the content for a staff

update containing a maximum of two content pages. When distributed to interprofessional team members, the

update will consist of one double-sided page.

The task force has asked team members assigned to the topics to include the following content in their updates in

addition to content on their selected topic(s):

What is protected health information (PHI)?

Be sure to include essential HIPAA information.

What are privacy, security, and confidentiality?

Define and provide examples of privacy, security, and confidentiality concerns related to the use of the

technology in health care.

Explain the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to safeguard sensitive electronic health


What evidence relating to social media usage and PHI do interprofessional team members need to be aware

of? For example:

How many nurses have been terminated for inappropriate social media usage in the United States?

What types of sanctions have health care organizations imposed on interdisciplinary team members

who have violated social media policies?

What have been the financial penalties assessed against health care organizations for inappropriate

social media usage?

What evidence-based strategies have health care organizations employed to prevent or reduce

confidentiality, privacy, and security breaches, particularly related to social media usage?


Your staff update is limited to two double-spaced content pages. Be selective about the content you choose

to include in your update so that you are able to meet the page length requirement. Include need-to-know

information. Leave out nice-to-know information.

Many times people do not read staff updates, do not read them carefully, or do not read them to the end.

Ensure your staff update piques staff members’ interest, highlights key points, and is easy to read. Avoid

overcrowding the update with too much content.

Also supply a separate reference page that includes 2–3 peer-reviewed and 1–2 non-peer-reviewed resources

(for a total of 3–5 resources) to support the staff update content.

Additional Requirements

Written communication: Ensure the staff update is free from errors that detract from the overall message.

Submission length: Maximum of two double-spaced content pages.

Font and font size: Use Times New Roman, 12-point.

Despite the medical profession’s focus during the last few decades on child abuse and intimate partner violence, there has been relatively little attention to elder abuse. Elder abuse is associated with physical and mental health problems, including physical injuries, depression, poor control of chronic diseases, and functional disability. Results of elder abuse can be devastating. During a 5-year period, nearly 114 elderly patients accounted for 628 emergency department visits seeking treatment for physical abuse. Mortality rates between 1992 and 2001 show that of 74 postmortem cases, 52 deaths were attributed to a homicidal act, and in 22 deaths neglect was suspected. Primary care may be a first response to abuse. In 2001, adults aged 65 years and older averaged 13.7 physician visits in the year. This level of interaction puts primary care physicians, who account for most visits, in a unique position to identify abuse and intervene.

Pathophysiological changes refer to functional changes associated with disease infection, inflammation, aging, disease condition, or injury, and changes can occur in any system of the body. Disease conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis are among the most common musculoskeletal system disorders. These progressive, degenerative conditions lead to pain, joint deformities, and limitations in mobility. Arthritis is a gradual breakdown of cartilage and underlying bone; osteoporosis is a gradual degeneration of bone. These pathophysiological changes in the musculoskeletal system lead to pain, swelling, and fracture. Diabetes is one of the most common metabolic disorder where we can see the pathophysiological changes such as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). DKA is a condition in which blood glucose is more than 250mg/dl, Arterial pH <7.3, Serum bicarbonate <15mEq/l. Symptoms of DKA include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dehydration, polyuria, and polydipsia. Severe DKA may lead to Kussmaul respiration hypotension, coma, and death. Sepsis is one of the common and serious disease conditions which affect multiple systems of the body. Symptoms are various based on stages including SIRS, sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock. Fever, tachycardia, tachypnea, changes in WBC count, increased platelets, changes in LOC, decrease in blood pressure are the symptoms of sepsis.

The risk factors for osteoporosis are increased in women, older age, being thin-boned, family history of osteoporosis, long term medication use of glucocorticoids and anticonvulsants. Other risk factors are a low level of calcium and vitamin D, anorexia nervosa, low estrogen, low testosterone in men, amenorrhea, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, excessive alcohol intake. Ethnicity also increases risk in White and Asian women being highest.

Nurses can help patients manage this health condition by educating on proper foods to get proper vitamins and minerals, especially enough calcium and vitamin D into diets. Education about exercise and therapeutic medications. The nurse can also refer the patient to an osteoporosis treatment program which improves bone health to increase muscle strength, coordination and balance. Nurses should also refer the patient to have an occupational therapist assess the home for falls.
