My 20month old son was drug tested by "accident" from the hospital labs department. Is this a hippa violation??
My 20month old son was taken to ER with fever and vomiting. Chest xray showed bronchitis. As we were leaving the nirse took his urine sample. We got a call to come back that my son was dehydrated. Once arriving back at hospital we were informed by his pediatrician that he was tested for drugs by accident and that he was positive for meth ingestion. (She also made comment that she would never have thought to give him a drug test just by the looks of him) 7hrs later i requested a 2nd drug test b given. Which was denied by Dr. saying he would b negative now so there is no point to retest. Ive now got DHS threatning to take my kids and put them in foster care. Was there a violation or law broken by the hospital from them administering a drug test on my child without my consent, and with no reason to? In fact it was a mistake to begin with. And how would he not test positive 7hrs later? Do i not have a right to ask for a retest or to see the results?
HIPAA violation? No. You should be much more concerned about righting the ship with the DHS rather than trying to...
How long before they charge you with a DUI?
I was in a single car accident a week ago under the influence of alcohol. I live in Iowa and was airlifted from the scene. The police know I'm currently home but have not charged me with a DUI yet. Is this normal...or possibly did they over look that I was under the influence. The hospital took alcohol blood test?????

What does it mean when someone's role in a criminal case is the payor?
Person's role in the case is listed as payor. It's a criminal drug case, so curious what that means.

Can i get in trouble if I was trying to get to the hospital but was pulled over?
I was trying to get to the hospital because I was hit in my already fractured rib. Everyone in the household was either intoxicated or on drugs so I tried driving myself. I have a suspended license and was taken to jail even after telling the officer that I need to get to the hospital. I was and still am in severe pain from it and try to do some things I could before but cant. Can the officer get in trouble for not helping me when I needed help?
Yes you can still get in trouble for driving on a suspended license. A prosecutor will cite that you could have called...
