Alright, let's wrap up that legality talk.
There's a lot of heavy content and serious stuff, right?
But again, please don't forget that this really provides the framework of how we practice,
so we can keep patient safe.
So, don't forget about your Nurse Practice Act,
this defines and describes the legal boundaries for us as nursing.
Also, there's that HIPAA word again, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act,
also known as HIPPA, is one example of Nursing Law.
If you remember, this is the one that helps protect patient privacy information
and patient treatment information.
And lastly, nurses, and you guys as students,
can be held legally responsible for acts of negligence and malpractice in the patient care setting.
I hope that was helpful for you today. Thanks for watching.
