Im a huc, with a concern
May 21, 2004
what do i do if a physician in my office reads his friends chart, and that friend is not his patient?
Response from Ms. Breuer
This is one that you take up confidentially with your human resources person, without naming the physician involved. There is no universal Website forum policy on this kind of question. How does your own employer want this handled? Your HR person will be aware of HIPAA and the legal implications of this violation of confidentiality.
