Recent audit results revealed several data errors associated with hospital encounters of patients who speak English as a second language. Create a scenario that illustrates what could happen if patient identity management and language access policies are not followed. Explain errors that could occur due the MOI infrastructure, misconduct of medical staff, lack of a translator being present, and any other possible event(s). Your scenario should cover a full hospital encounter starting from patient registration to patient discharge. For each error, (1) evaluate the healthcare standards and/or laws that specifically address patient information, privacy, and language access policies, and (2) recommend a solution.
· Write a 3-page scenario that covers patient identity management, privacy, and language access policies.
