Pat, I need more information to determine whether you have a case. From the information you told me, it is indeterminable because I do not know what information was released to whom, or why. You being pulled out of the meeting is not a HIPAA violation. This is why I need to know what information was disclosed.
Whom am I talking to are u even a America ?Can u read ,are what? I told u I was in the treatment u know the hospital da.!!! Do u speak the English are not ?
All healthcare providers have a responsibility to keep their staff trained and informed regarding HIPAA compliance. If a person believes that his/her health information privacy rights have been violated, then one of the easiest ways to determine whether there is a case is by filing a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) so that OCR can investigate. You can file a complaint online at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/office/index.html If it is determined that rights have been violated, failure to comply with HIPAA can result in civil and criminal penalties under the law(42 USC § 1320d-5). What this means is that a court may impose a civil monetary penalty (a fine) or criminal sentence on any person or covered entity that violates any HIPAA requirement. The nature of the penalty can depend on whether the violation was intentional and also on whether there was any attempt after the violation to correct it.
