If they feel like you cannot provide a good home for the baby then yes they can keep it. If you do not pay then they will assume that since you do not have the money to pay the hospital bills then you will not have enough money to take care of a baby. If this happens then the baby will go into custody of the state and you will lose ALL legal rights to it. Good luck! XOXO
Ask him for the bills.
Benefits at McDonald's vary from owners to owner. Some will offer 401k plans, investment opportunities, full or partial health and dental benefits, and more.
This is a very broad question, especially in that HIPAA strives to be "transparent" in that it will not define what methodology is acceptable, but rather, will tell you how to ascertain if your choice is properly made. There is no particular technology described under HIPAA.
The relationship between DB design and HIPAA is that, if HIPAA applies to the company who owns or uses the database, then the database (and lots else) much be created in such a manner that it allows for compliance with this law.
As for DB design, the following factors will have a somewhat unique effect:
- Role Based access. While not a requirement under HIPAA, it turns out that some parties may access some data and others may not. Your design should take this into account.
- Protected Health Information (PHI). Access to certain fields (PHI) may be restricted, and you'll need to show the steps you took to ensure this information is not released, either accidentally or through foul play. You may also need to track legal access to PHI.
- Archiving. HIPAA requires archival storage of data, but it doesn't say how long, depending instead on "best practices". I'd make this selectable, and I'd back up my reasoning for this in my documentation.
- Disaster Planning and Recovery. HIPAA requires that you maintain backups in such a manner that a disaster will neither destroy or limit access to live or archival data for any longer than need be. How long is not stated -- see Risk Assessment.
- "Break Glass" initiative. HIPAA states that it does not sanction failures in delivery of health care as a result of implementing this law. In this case, it means you can lock down PHI based on roles, or secure in any number of ways, but if a doctor in an ER needs that patient information, there must be a means of overriding security and (a) allowing access to critical PHI as well as (b) tracking that abnormal access. In other words, in an emergency, you need to be able to break the glass and get to the PHI if you need it.
- Risk Assessment. HIPAA enforcement focuses on intent and due dilligence. Even if you make a mistake, it'll go a lot easier on you if you've researched your decisions and documented them in a RIsk Assessment. This is a pretty formal procedure and, if you haven't done one before, consider getting help.
This of course isn't all. COnsidering the scope of HIPAA, it's easy to see that all the possible changes in database design wouldn't even fit into a thesis, much less an online response.
