Sorry...can you clarify...who is contact the code enforcement office? A neighbor ? Someone else?
And to make sure I understand, the report was about the conditions INSIDE the home?
That is NOT a HIPAA violation. HIPAA prohibit the release of "private health information".
Sharing information about a violation of local laws with the relevant authority is not a release of private health information and, therefore, not a violation of the HIPAA
