POSTING #1:
Read the following scenario; Reflect on best practices for remote coding, protecting PHI, and
ethical practices
Sally is a remote coder. She has worked from home on a regular basis for the past two years and
been diligent about observing strict privacy practices while working from her dedicated home
office space in the basement of her home. Unfortunately, her basement floor flooded due to a
water heater leak so she has temporarily set up a temporary office in the dinning room on the
main floor. While Sally was diligent for the most part at signing off while away from the computer
screen, changing passwords frequently, and closing her laptop when family members entered
the room, today she had a major slip. Sally’s dog burst through the front door and ran after the
UPS delivery driver. In haste to catch the dog, she left her computer open, unattended. When
Sally returned, she found her husband reading the record that she had been coding. As he got
up from the desk, he said, “Hey sorry, I couldn’t resist? I didn’t know that Mr. Pebody has cancer,
that is so sad.” Sally responded “Yes it is, but please don’t tell anyone, I could get into a lot of
trouble.” She then returned to work reminding herself to be more careful in the future.
