Homework Help: HIPPA

Posted by Sanmjha on Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 2:31pm.

Please help thanks

I am a bit confused on this question

Paula Jamasen's attorney asks Dr Tsou for the medical records about Paula's car accident and promises to provide a written authroization fom Paula later. Dr Tsou gives the attorney Paula's entire file, including her records about treatment for HIV I need to know if any violations of HIPPA privacy rule has occurred..

Now I Know that with HIPPA the doctor etc can not discuss the patient's iformation with other people and you need to have something in writing from the patient for whom your medical informaton can be shared with such as family members etc. No I think a violation has happened because Paula should have singed a relase form first and the doctor should not have given the part of the medical record about Paula's HIV treatment
