INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE

 

In healthcare today, smartphones are widely used for communication, efficiency, and care. Obviously, a

variety of issues (ethical, professional, and legal) from both the personal and hospital perspectives

must be considered. SCENARIO

You are a nurse in the emergency room, working the Friday 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift, and your evening has

been filled with the usual mix of drunken belligerent teens, wailing babies, chronic obstructive

pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations, falls, fractures, and the routine, regular congestive heart

failure (CHF) patients. Your best friend is texting you from the concert that you had to miss tonight

because you were scheduled to work, and you respond to her between care of patients, jealous that she

is there and you are not. “What a jerk to torture me like this!” you think to yourself.INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE

It is now 2 a.m., and the medics radio once again, notifying you of an incoming motor vehicle accident

victim, ETA of 5 minutes. You sigh and opt to use the restroom, rather than getting that much‐needed

cup of coffee, and prepare a room for your next patient. The medics roll in and begin to fill you in. The

patient is a 28‐year‐old male, a passenger on a bus that was involved in a crash, leaving the vehicle

overturned after rolling over an embankment. There were several fatalities among the bus passengers,

and “this victim has remained unconscious, though his vitals are currently” . . . and as you start to focus

on the patient, you take a second look. Can it be? It is! The lead singer, Jerod, from the band “Blue

Lizards,” who you have adored since you first heard his voice! The band had just left the concert that

you had missed last evening when the accident occurred. You quickly text your best friend . . . “Can you

believe?” and she responds with “Yeah, right. PROVE IT.” So you quickly snap a picture with your

smartphone, when alone with the patient, and send it to her. Can’t hurt, right? Celebrities are “public

property,” and that’s a part of their life, right? Just for good measure, you snap a few more pictures of

the unconscious singer in various stages of undress and then a shot of his home address, phone number,

and demographic information from his electronic health record. You sit your phone down on the

bedside table for a minute as you continue your assessment of the patient.INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE

At 7:00 a.m., you drag your tired body home and straight to bed after a long but eventful night.

 

What happens next? Choose an ending to the scenario, and construct your paper based on those

reflections:

1. You are the following nurse on the day shift and discover the night nurse’s phone on the bedside

table. While trying to figure out to whom it belongs, you open the phone and see the

photographs taken the night before. Holy moly! What a find, and nobody could trace you to the

photos.INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE

2. You receive a call from the gossip paper the Gossip Gazette, offering you $20,000 for the photos

you have taken (courtesy of your best friend). Your identity would never be revealed, and you

desperately need a new car and are behind on some bills.

3. You go on Facebook, on your day off, and talk about the night you had at work and how you

didn’t really feel as bad having to miss the concert, because you actually got to meet Jerod in

person and even “Got his number!” You then post a picture of Jerod on Facebook and INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE

Instagram, figuring that most of your contacts would never recognize him anyway. It’s your day

off and your personal time, so no harm, no foul, right?

4. You receive a message the next morning from a peer at work that there is a big investigation

being conducted at work due to a HIPAA violation and that it involved a celebrity who had been

admitted to the hospital. The word is that legal action is being taken against the hospital due to

some photos that were sold to the Gossip Gazette. Knowing that the photo you sent is safe with

your best friend, you reach for your smartphone, but it is nowhere to be found. INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN HEALTHCARE
