Application For Employment
Competency Test

Step 1 of 14

  • Please go through and answer the questions then compare them to the answer sheet.


  • Confidentiality


    Confidentiality is a conscious effort by every employee to keep all personal resident information private. This may include a client’s identity, physical or mental condition, emotional state, financial situation, or an overheard conversation.
  • HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. It is a federal rule covering the health care and health insurance industries. The HIPAA privacy rule is designed to protect clients and their personal health information.
  • As a health care provider, Worthington Home Care Agency is required to comply with HIPAA rules since we maintain and transmit protected health information (PHI) in writing, verbally, and via computer. PHI includes things such as a client’s identification number, social security number, and physician notes pertaining to the client, test results, and health insurance plan number. Confidentiality must be maintained with regards to a client’s PHI.
  • Clients have the right to access their health records and may request amendments to the record. They may restrict who has access to their information. All employees are responsible for protecting the medical record from loss, destruction, and unauthorized use. Client information should never be thrown in a trashcan. It should be properly destroyed or shredded.
  • Physicians, nurses, and therapists may have unlimited access to a client’s chart for whom they are caring. All others may access only the information they need to know as defined by their job description or facility policy. Failing to follow HIPAA rules can result in fines or even imprisonment!
  • Privacy is a person’s right to keep their personal matters and relationships secret from others.
    Security is the ability to control and protect information from accidental or intentional disclosure to unauthorized persons, and from alteration, destruction, or loss.
  • How can you protect confidentiality?
    • Only share client information with those who “need to know”
    • Report breaches of confidentiality to your supervisor
    • Do not discuss clients when you are outside the facility
    • Protect client records by keeping private information covered
    • Make sure you have the correct number when sending a fax
    • Keep your computer screen turned away form public view
    • Do not share your password; logoff your computer when not in use
    • Don’t leave client information lying on the desk where others can see it
    • Speak quietly when discussing a client; move to a private location if necessary
  • No confidential information may be released outside the facility without proper authorization from the client or responsible party. Any information released must be cleared by the Health Information Management (HIM) Department. The only exception is the client’s admission or discharge date from the facility.
  • If a client is cognitively impaired, the POA (power of attorney) or responsible party must authorize the release of client information. If the client is not cognitively impaired, authorization should be obtained from him/her. If a family is requesting a copy of a client’s medical record, they should be referred to HIM. An employee should never take printed client information out of the facility.
  • When beginning work, all new employees sign a confidentiality pledge and are responsible for keeping information they have access to confidential.
