Case Study 4: Privacy at Lakeview Medical Center
You are the CEO at Lakeview Medical Center, an urban medical center, consisting of
two acute care hospitals, a medical school, a dental annex, and an allied health
complex. Earlier this morning, your Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) enters your office
quite frantic and relays the following story:
Mrs. Henry was a patient on one of your med/surgical floors. She was experiencing
some complications when a medical team rushed into her room to resuscitate her.
When she came to, she looked up and noticed a man in her room observing the entire
scene. She dismissed this, thinking that he was probably a member of the medical team
or the administrative staff. As the medical team proceeds to attend to her, she was
shuffled around and she felt very aware of the fact that this man kept staring at her
throughout the ordeal. After a few minutes, Mrs. Henry asked the nurse, “Who is that
man in my room and why is he here?” The nurse quickly addressed her and responded,
“Oh, him? That’s Mr. Davis. His wife has been in here for over two weeks. Don’t pay him
any attention, he likes to roam the hallways and peek in every now and then to see if
any action is going on.”
Mrs. Henry was quite upset and devastated that her privacy and safety was
compromised. Worse yet, Mr. Davis was a complete stranger and no one was even
aware that he was in the room the whole time.
The COO then proceeds to hand you a letter that was delivered by the Henrys’ family
attorney requesting immediate action on what you, as the CEO, intend to do to uphold
the privacy and safety for all your patients in your medical center. The attorney has
advised that you respond to his notice immediately or he will be contacting the media on
how patient rights are not taken seriously at your facilities.
