Legal prohibitions against sharing passwords are legally based on:
The Security Rule
The American Nurses Association’s Code of Ethics
The American Hospital’s Patients’ Bill of Rights
The Autonomy Rule
Correct Response: A
Prohibitions against sharing passwords are legally based on the Security Rule of HIPAA mandates administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to insure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. This rule relates to electronic information security as well as other forms of information.
The American Nurses Association’s Code of Ethics and the American Hospital’s Patients’ Bill of Rights both address client confidentiality and their rights to privacy, however, these statements are not legal, but instead ethical and regulatory statements; and lastly, there is no autonomy law or rule.
