Resident Care: Protecting Privacy and Confidentiality

Privacy and confidentiality are vital resident rights…

This DVD defines both privacy and confidentiality as it equips caregivers to understand why and how they should safeguard the personal, financial, and medical records and affairs of all residents. This DVD outlines residents’ rights by law in relation to OBRA, HIPAA, and the HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and offers 6 proactive steps caregivers can take to maintain resident privacy and confidentiality with staff and family members.

Caregivers will be encouraged to:
• acknowledge why privacy and confidentiality are important rights
• recognize everyday situations that might jeopardize these rights
• demonstrate actions that ensure resident privacy and confidentiality

The DVD also touches on how changes in technology, such as, cell phones and social media, can affect privacy and why staff must respect a resident’s choice to not share information.
