We Can, but Dare We?
Requirements
1. Research, compose, and type a scholarly paper based on the scenario described below,
and choose a conclusion scenario to discuss within the body of your paper. Reflect on
lessons learned in this class about technology, privacy concerns, and legal and ethical
issues and addressed each of these concepts in the paper, reflecting on the use of
smartphones and social media in healthcare. Consider the consequences of such a
scenario. Do not limit your review of the literature to the nursing discipline only because
other health professionals are using the technology, and you may need to apply critical
thinking skills to its applications in this scenario.
2. Use Microsoft Word and APA formatting.
3. . The length of the paper should be four to five pages, excluding the title page and the
reference page. Limit the references to a few key sources (minimum of three required).
4. The paper will contain an introduction that catches the attention of the reader, states the
purpose of the paper, and provides a narrative outline of what will follow (i.e., the
assignment criteria).
5. . In the body of the paper, discuss the scenario in relation to HIPAA, legal, and other
regulatory requirements that apply to the scenario and the ending you chose. Demonstrate
support from sources of evidence (references) included as in‐ text citations.
6. Choose and identify one of the four possible endings provided for the scenario, and
construct your paper based on its implications to the scenario. Make recommendations
about what should have been done and what could be done to correct or mitigate the
problems caused by the scenario and the ending you chose. Demonstrate support from
sources of evidence (references) included as in‐ text citations.
7. Present the advantages and disadvantages of using smartphones and social media in
healthcare and describe professional and ethical principles to the appropriate use of this
technology, based on facts from supporting sources of evidence, which must be included
as in‐ text citations.
8. The paper’s conclusion should summarize what you learned and make reflections about
them to your practice.
Preparing for the Assignment
BACKGROUND
Healthcare is readily embracing any technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline
operations, and lower costs, but we must also consider the impact of such technology on
privacy and patient care. This technology includes the use of social media applications, such
as Facebook, Instagram, Myspace, Twitter, and LinkedIn on smartphones.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
