I have a person in authority who clearly says that HIPAA was violated when the nurse told co-workers why she was upset. It is a small community and some of her co-workers know the nurse's cousin and mother of the baby.
However, isnt this a family situation, not HIPAA? The aunt clearly told nurse what happened. The nurse was just sharing with co-workers. Yes or No?
