Is it a HIPAA violation if a doctor checks your pharmacy records? Nurse or doctor from a pain management center. Just curious...thanks!
You are right @johnsms as the part where the doctors should keep every detail a secret is what matters most. I have seen patients sue their health consultants for revealing some key details of their medical history and that is what we should frown at.If you had access to your patient's pharmacy records, you can access them to help you make an informed medical decision on your patient. But, you must keep this information private, and avoid sharing it with friends or family members.
