Disciplinary Guidelines for HIPAA Violations


When protected health information is improperly accessed, used or released, or when an individual fails to comply with HIPAA Policies and Procedures; an individual may be disciplined based on the individual's classification. The specific discipline administered will depend on the nature and severity of the violation. Action will be initiated by the appropriate School or operational area in accordance with the classification of an individual (i.e., classified, credentialed faculty, student, etc.) and if necessary, the requirements of the individual's licensing Boards. Below is a link to each School's disciplinary guidelines for faculty, residents and students.

All classified and administration professional (A&P) employees are covered under the first link.
