- More audits needed

I agree with strong penalties for this type of snooping. Along with Eastern Health, the Canada Revenue Agency, Chartered Banks, etc. also need to monitor employees who do not take the responsibility of their employment seriously. The improper reviewing of information is no different, ethically, than stealing.

I think it is time for Eastern Health and other Health Corps. to put into place software that only allows employees to access only patient files that they have in their care. For example if a nurse is working on 5SB then she can only access the patients on that floor and if they try to enter another patient file it should be red flagged to indicate that they are entering a restricted area and IP will be notified. As new patients are admitted/discharged this could easily be updated. Not all Eastern Health employees have access to patient files but at least the people that do if this was put in place it would certainly help in this matter.

Money talks! When there are financial consequenses involved, snooping will be drastically reduced. Unfortunately our "injustice" system is such that a slap on the wrist is typical. Not a real deterrent to sneeking a look.
