When school nursing and student privacy laws clash – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
School nursing is an area of practice that is unique, complex and challenging.
It is often practiced without immediate in-person consultation and support, and is governed by both state and federal laws.
I have highlighted these issues in former blogs that discussed allegations nursing care provided by a school nurse was negligent.
For those of you who practice school nursing in a public institution, another important part of your practice is protecting a student’s privacy.
