Doctor Under Fire For Bridgibg The Doctor Patient Confidentiality Code

A gynecologist has found herself in deep trouble for posting her patient's confidential information on Facebook

According to According to TheBump.com, a popular website for moms-to-be, Dr. Amy Dunbar of Mercy Medical Center posted the following on Facebook:

 

“So I have a patient who has chosen to either no-show or be late (sometimes hours) for all of her prenatal visits, ultrasounds, and NSTs. She is now three hours late for her induction. May I show up late for her delivery?”

Bloggers critiqued Dunbar and said she violated her patient’s privacy thou she never mentioned her name.

Mercy has not fired Dunbar, but released the following statement:

“Our physician leadership has already called Dr. Dunbar. Her comments were definitely inappropriate. We are also reviewing them to determine if they violated privacy issues, etc. That process requires a more thorough review, but we will determine the appropriate response as quickly as possible. In the meantime, know that our physician organization holds its members to the highest standards and strives to improve our service and clinical care through that process.”
