Customer Question
I know someone in the...
I know someone in the medical field who assisted in a minor procedure for the daughter of a friend. The father knew the procedure was going to happen but did not know when. Unaware of this, the medical person let him know it all went well. When he contacted the ex-wife, upset about not having been told the date of the procedure, the ex-wife went after the facility. She is now pressing charges although she had posted on Facebook right after the procedure was finished, and knowing the father has rights to all of the girl's medical records.

Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.

This is not something that she could press charges for. She could file a HIPAA complaint against the doctor's office/your friend but that's not generally criminal. If liability is found, a fine can be imposed. And, even that seems unlikely in this case if the father is entitled to receive the medical information.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
