Question about doctors offices

Okay we have patient privacy right?

Now what do I do if someone found out I was a patient for the same doctor they go to? They left a list of the doctors patients on the computer in the persons room. The person contacted me last night asking if I saw that doctor. Can this office just leave a list of their patients open like that?

  • No. HIPPA regulations state they are suppose to keep everything confidential. Leaving open charts/files is a big no-no. I would complain to the office manager.
