Viral video shows the importance of having policies available to employees.
In the case of Alex Wubbels, Utah nurse, she refused to draw blood from an incapacitated patient at the police’s request. She showed the police officer a copy of the hospital’s policy of when they can draw blood of an incapacitated patient. This highlights the point that if you are a health care provider or facility you might be faced with this situation where the police are asking for information from you to have a written policy in place so your employees know specifically what to do. This video walks through the process of a covered entity making disclosures for law enforcement purposes, as well as the HIPAA privacy rule.
