  1. 1. The doctor gave another person her records without her signed consent.
    2. The doctor gave the attorney the entire file when only the records for the accident were requested.

  2. Thank you very much!

    I've been looking over the HIPAA website to find some supporting documentation to this question and came up with some of what you wrote, only up said it better and clearer :)

    Do you or anybody happen to have anything bookmarked that I can do some more research myself on this essay question?

    Thanks again in advance.

  3. Sorry -- but I answered you with my own prior knowledge. But, the answers are obvious.

  4. The violation of HIPAA Privacy rule is that the doctor shouldnt have submitted whole the file without the patience attention.
