In this matter, Northwestern Memorial Hospital terminated our client for scope of authority issues and HIPAA violation issues. Our client was the labor and delivery nurse for patient’s mothers. On her own time, she visited the neo-natal unit on two occasions, viewed the charts and gave a baby a message. She was terminated for working outside of the scope of her authority and obtaining confidential information in doing so. We were able to establish her IDES hearing that she committed no misconduct in that she was given permission by the parents to give the baby a message. Furthermore, after review of Northwestern protocol we were able to establish that our client did not breach any confidentiality. This particular client was a great nurse; a pleasure to work with and we won the hearing.
