Confidentiality Agreement

I understand and acknowledge that:

I agree not to access, disclose or release any patient information other than that which is required to do my job. 

I agree not to make inquiries for other personnel who do not have proper authority to access patient information.

I agree not to inform another person of my computer password or use another person’s computer password instead of my own for any reason.

I will log off the computer prior to leaving it unattended. 

The computer sign-on password is my personal code, and this password will be changed every 90-days 

I will only print information from SJCRH through the Cerner system when necessary for legitimate work related purposes. I am accountable for this information until it is properly filed or shredded. 

I will dispose of printed information by first shredding the document to make it impossible to reconstruct and read the information. I will house documents awaiting destruction in secure collection containers, with specific attention to location of the container and locking capabilities. 

My obligation to safeguard patient information continues after my relationship with the SJCRH patient(s) has ended.

It is my legal and ethical responsibility to protect the privacy, confidentiality and security of all medical records, proprietary information and other confidential information relating to SJCRH and its affiliates. 

I understand and agree that Cerner and SJCRH cannot guarantee access to SJCRH’s electronic medical records or current updated electronic medical records due to system breakdowns and other unforeseen technical difficulties. Accordingly, I agree to release and hold harmless SJCRH, its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, directors and agents from and against any and all damages that may occur as a result of my inability to access SJCRH’s information through the Cerner system at any given time. 

IN NO EVENT WILL SJCRH BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INACCURATE OR INCOMPLETE DATA, LOST DATA, OR OTHER SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SERVICE, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHER CONTRACT BREACH, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER TORT, OR ON ANY STRICT LIABILITY THEORY, EVEN IF ST. JUDE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES, AND WHETHER OR NOT SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE. SJCRH assumes no liability to any other party arising out of your use or inability to use this service. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the bargain between SJCRH and you. SJCRH would not be able to provide this service to you without such limitations.
