    Answer:

    a. Does Susan’s explanation sound convincing?

    No, Susan’s explanation does not sound convincing.  

    b. Why is Jennifer concerned about Susan looking at the patient’s record?

    Jennifer is worried about Susan looking at the patients records, in light of the fact that Susan isn’t as it were  invavading someone elses privacy, yet additionally wasting time on the PC, when she could be  accomplishing something more useful and priductive. As a group we make a solid effort to keep the patients records as  private as could be possible.

    c. Just because the individual is a patient at the clinic, does that mean any employee has  the right to look at the patient’s EHR?

    If the employee is not working with the patient then they do not have the right to go into their  records. Hence, just because the individual is a patient at the clinic doesn’t mean any employee has  the right to look at the patient’s EHR.

    Thank you 🙂
