Barb Simmons, Senior Social Worker, was not back from lunch and so June was given a phone call pertaining to one of Barb’s patients. Being inexperienced, June unintentionally shared information about a patient, Debbie Fox, over the phone with someone who was not authorized to be given medical information about Ms. Fox.
