Scenario

Work space sharing is becoming an efficient way to share resources among hospitals and other business models. Do we have any ethical guidelines regarding shared work spaces among two companies that provide similar ABA services in a private property? We can address the confidentiality issues but we wanted to make sure we did our due diligence in preparation for a possible space sharing situation.

Response

    • Committee Input (e.g., considerations for pathways forward, potential barriers, potential solutions):
      • The committee input is provided based on the assumption that the shared workspace being referred to, is an outpatient treatment facility.
        • Additional privacy measures such as computer privacy screens, using abbreviations during phone calls and keeping files securely, considering schedule rotations/shifts to minimize client overlap
        • Additional consents to consumers
        • Posted disclosures to consumers
        • Ongoing environmental audits to ensure compliance with privacy/confidentiality measures
    • Ethics Codes (specific standards that could apply to support/oppose):
      • 06 maintaining confidentiality.
      • 07 maintaining records- ensuring files are locked etc.
