Paula Patient's attorney asks Dr. Bob for medical records about Paula's car accident and promises to provide a written authorization form later. Dr. Bob gives the attorney Paula's entire file, including her records about treatment for HIV. Discuss any violations of HIPAA Privacy Rule that may have occurred in one or two paragraphs.
I would have had the authorization before release, and HIV has nothing to do with accidents.
