Which of the following might constitute breach of patient-doctor confidentiality?

C. Receptionist with no medical training makes appointment for patient
D. Receptionist sends checkup reminder for patient to someone other than patient

    Two answers stick in my mind..

    B could be, if the medical assistant had no business looking into that patients file.
    D could be, especially for some speciality doctors (gyn, ob, psychiatrists, drug rehab drs, etc).

    Which do you think it the more grievous?

    I was thinking B. but still not sure!!!

    Be sure you give your REASONS behind your choice(s), just as Bobpursley did. That's the only way anyone in this forum knows what you're thinking.
