What state is this in regards ***** *****?
I am sorry to hear this. Thank you for your patience as I researched this.
Any breach of medical confidentiality is an injury to the patient. Hageman v. Sw. Gen. Health Ctr., 893 N.E.2d 153, 156 (Ohio 2008). Ohio recognizes the breach of physician-patient confidentiality as a tort, which means the plaintiff may recover for any harm suffered. Since it is considered a tort, case law controls the issue (whereas statutory law controls non-tort cases)
