If there is a need for change in these policies, the administrators should oversee these changes. From an ethical point of view, the people in the managerial positions should lead by example. If the employees see their supervisors, administrators and co-workers following the rules, they will also tend to follow these rules. The administrators should also set the guidelines for punishment then inform the human resource individuals of a possible violation. Regulations for the investigation of likely privacy violations are matters that should be handled by the administration and human resource . Overall review of HIPAA regulations, private regulations and privacy policies should be serviced occasionally to ensure that employees understand them to the fullest.

The privacy of patients is the most important part of any healthcare facility. The patients trust the facility to keep their personal information private. This information should not be given out without the consent of the patient. The patients should always feel protected and safe with the healthcare facility. Having rules and regulations dealing with personal health information is the best way to ensure that information is kept safe. In case of a violation, malicious or not, it should be handled properly and not overlooked for the maintenance of the highest confidentiality level. The facility should know how to take care of any information given to them.
