Can anyone help me get more info on this question? I need one or two paragraphs to answer.
Q: Paula Patient's attorney asks Dr. Bob for medical records about Paula's car accident and promises to provide a written authorization from Paula later. Dr. Bob gives the attorney Paula's entire file, including her records about treatment for HIV. Discuss any VIOLATIONS of HIPAA privacy ruole that may have occurred.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions!

    You've asked for "more info." What information do you already have?

    Check your text for HIPAA's privacy rules.

    It seems to me that Dr. Bob has made at least two violations. He gave the file without a signature -- and he included information that wasn't pertinent to the lawyer's case. Did the doctor have Paula's permission to hand any medical records over to the attorney?

  • Health Information -

    No, the Dr had no permission and he also sent back information about treatment for HIV which had nothing to do with the info requested.

  • Health Information -

    That's three violations. I'm sure you have enough information to complete your assignment.
