A registered nurse has openly admitted she has discussed the contents of our records with relatives and her personal friends.
What recourse do we have to see that she is punished legally?
Can we sue her for violating our HIPAA rights? If so, how should we proceed?
Can we file a civil lawsuits via state laws, HIPAA complaint through the OCR and a Board of Nurses Examiners complaint at the same time?
Do we have to furnish our private medical records to the courts and agencies where we file complaints?
Please, help us. We need to stop her malicious activities and regain our privacy.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
