What is the name of your state, ARIZONA (only U.S. law)?
Hello. I need to know if this his HIPAA violation. My son, whom is 4 yrs old has a primary pediatricians office. His father and I have divorced, and his father has since then married. He and his new wife decided to change up his doctors office on me w/o me knowing. Anyways, his wife has given the "new" medical offices the impression that she is the biological mother, and my ex husband is giving the same impression. Now, I know the hospital is not at fault if they are under that impression, but is the new wife invading the privacy act? If the Offices are under the impression she is the mother, there would be no "sign and consent form" that they would have had to sign on for registration. She has put her information on all slots necessary where mine should go, and has taken my son into appointments without my ex husband being present, and my knowledge of them doing so. I am aware of how HIPAA works, however I just want to get other's opinions and knowledge as well.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
