According to my company policy, I was refused a copy of a document from my personnel record because I refused to sign as I did not agree with content in the write up.I researched and found Illinois Personnel Record Review Act and it states that I am entitled to receive copies of all information contained in my employment file.Does my company's policy override this?

I was fired from the medical facility due to PAA violation.

Hello, I was fired from the medical facility due to HIPAA violation. I accessed my mother's clinical records due to her being in critical condition for 4 months without clear diagnosis and finally being admitted to ER twice and to the hospital three times with the last time through the ICU. HIPAA compliance complaint was filed when my mother stayed the third time in the hospital (during the last 4 months) and each specialty team treating my mother was denying their specialty organ/system involvement that would cause such a severe condition. Treatment management due to wrong primary diagnosis just aggravated my mother's condition. I'm a former physician and also an informal primary care physician, only a caregiver and POA for my nighty-two-year-old mother. Having my mother's tests results known before meeting with specialists allowed me to get a deeper knowledge of mother's condition and its possible causes and allow me to discuss additional tests during the meeting as well as future treatment management and preclude my mother from unnecessary invasive procedures one of which already worsened her lung function. I did not know that being only a caregiver and POA for my mother, having very poor communication with direct healthcare providers (waiting for days for physician response when severe symptoms were developing within hours), and applying also all my medical knowledge accordingly with the test results would end up with my job termination due to HIPAA violation. For my 8-year work period in the medical organization, I have never accessed medical records of anybody else (but my mother's) who were out of my job field. The other sources to legally access medical records are: online through my chart - about 14 days waiting time, medical records department - days. As I understand I can not apply for unemployment benefits. Is there a way overturn my job termination or to become eligible for unemployment benefits?

On Friday May 27th, my fiance was involvedbin a motorcycle

Good afternoon,On Friday May 27th, my fiance was involvedbin a motorcycle accident that occurred in Fredericksburg VA. Thank god, he is ok but he was transported to the ER where he was diagnosed with a broken humerus/shoulder 6 stitches and lots of road rash.In any event he was referred to follow up with an orthopedic that they recommended this week, howeve when we called to make the appointment, the desk staff was out to lunch so we waited for the return call where he is unable to be seen for another week. We called the ER as they had perscribed him nausea meds as well as 5mg Norco/hydrocodone x15 tablets. It being a holiday weekend and knowing he would run out, the ER staff advised he go see an urgent care facility near our home and that they would be able to perscribe him a refill for his pain meds, or we would have to travel the almost 60 miles back to get a script. So this morning we crossed over to our local NEXTCARE, Galveston Court, Manassas location, where I (his fiance have been going to as well as my minor son for 10 years thatbI have neighbored this care place. 1st and foremost I beleive my fiance was automatically judged and stero typed (possibly from being tatted up from head to toe lol) we ride Harleys and have prfessional jobs, own our home , cars etc...(not their place to do, but they did)from the moment we walked on the door. We had empty pain med bottle in hand, x-rays, and all ER paper work in hand and provided it to them upon arival. The desk guy went to the back, cane back out, saw the Dr. On duty peep around the corner and we were advised that they couldnt see him, or perscribe him any pain medicine. So i simply said wait a minute...we were instructed to come here and we are willing to pay out of pocket to be seen if necessary, and you mean to tell me you are refusing him medical treatment???!! We asked to speak to a supervisor or Dr. On duty, manager ...anyone other than he. So he goes to the back anx same guy returns again, to say "she is not goingbto see you and will not perscribe you narcotics, ....no other recommendations, for even another type, kind of pain medicine or anything, then the manager a very disturbed individual to saybthe least, came out with an attitude and while there was one other patient waiting and overheard this entire ordeal, as well as I had my brother on the phone listening also, he told us to leave!! I asked his name, he said DON! THE MANAGER! Inthen proceeded to ask if theybwere refusing my fiance medical treatment, he said No, I will be happy to check you in and take a payment from you, but itbis our Dr.'s preference NOT TO PERSCRIBE PAIN MEDICINE! Again, we were walked to the door by Don as well as a nurse staff lady and instructed to leave, and thatbwe could go down the street to (I think he said a Dr.Fatiema of we wanted Narcodics) at this point I am outraged and furious and if this sounds like a medical malpractice law suit to you???? As well as a descrimination law suit??!! Any advice you could give Id be most appreciative, as this facility, did not once even review the stack of paperwork that we handed them, not sure how in the hell they could have missed his arm being held in place by this contraption as well as all the road rash that was clearly fresh meat and visible due to us having to cut off 1/2 his shirt, in order to cover up his manliness! But this was the most unprofessional place and staff that are in their but I can assure you that I'llI'll be discussing this visit with an attorney. I've never in my life been more humiliated and embarrassed than I was with todays experience with this NEXTCARE FACILITY. I look forward to hearing from you very soon, and Thank you. ~Brandi

I am a psychiatrist whose private practice office is located

I am a psychiatrist whose private practice office is located in a Federal Building - on the ********* of the **************** in ********* Ct. which, amongst other things, houses the offices of a Federal Prosecutor, State's attorney, and several banks. To my knowledge, I am the only practicing physician in the building (the story of how that came to be is for another time!) In any case, every person who enters the building is required to show a picture ID and sign in - this for security purposes. I have arranged with the security staff to have a separate sign-in sheet for anyone coming to my office so as to preserve their privacy. As everyone entering the building is required to identify themselves and show an ID, and as a large minority of my visitors are not patients, I have not established a business associate agreement with the building management (the building spans approximately 40 stories and is filled with offices). One patient of mine - who tends to be quite paranoid - has been telling people on the sign-in line that they do not have to sign in - disrupting the sign-in process - and yesterday said (I think intentionally disruptively) to one of the guards in front of many on the sign-in line - "who knows- maybe that man signing in has a gun in his briefcase and you're not checking it." The building manager told me that she would have to ban that patient - a woman - from entering the building if that happened again. I have a good relationship with the building management and security staff (although this is a new one for all of us), and I have an understanding of the clinical issues involved, e.g. dangerousness - but I'd like to know if any special confidentiality constraints involving HIPPA apply to the security sign-in process in this non-medical building, e.g. ought I have a business associate agreement with the management, or even are there other rules that may pertain? I would be grateful for any advice you could give me or even any relevant thoughts. Thank you.Kenneth ****************
