Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help I'm sorry to hear about this situation, what specifically are you asking?
So a worker took the towel to go show people and laugh? I'm sorry I'm having trouble following the story.
Okay thank you for the information - the answer to your question is that it is not a criminal offense, but the patient could sue the practice for violation of duty of care and a HIPAA violation. Any medical personnel involved could be subject to losing their license and the business could face severe penalties and high fines. It would be very difficult for the individual persons to be sued personally, as they were acting on behalf of the Lab, but they could personally lose medical licenses and face fines for the HIPAA violation.
I hope that answers your question and could you please rate me with 5 stars
