Apparently you can't read! It was clearly stated that is was a female nurse that wors at KDMC in the ER. And we live in a small community, it doesn't taking names to figure out who someone is duh! And yes it is a HIPAA violation to state someone's medical condition when it is coming from a health care worker even if a name was not given, a town, a place business where it happened,of incident where all given. There is more detail here than you are seeing. the general population is not held to the same ethical standards as a nurse, duh![/QUOTE]

Haha...No hospital name was given. Go reread the original message. No. 2 post

Lol, It could have been me or anyone else for that matter. I'm sure anyone reading this would agree with me and not your stupidity! I will argue when I am right and admit when I'm wrong unlike you! I could take care of you some day or even a family member of yours (may already do) and I promise you that I will not gossip about you by violating your right to privacy or any other means. You will be well cared for physically and mentally regardless of your behavior, sex, race or financial means. That's the way we all deserve to be cared for by our healthcare systems. Now argue with that!!![/QUOTE]

After reading this thread, it looks like nobody agrees with you, you are all alone...

You all are arguing a moot point, it's second hand information, hearsay on topix could be any krogers in any state anywhere. No location no names a judge would laugh at it.

NEWS ALERT!! No identifying information was given on the lady so there has been NO HIPAA violation. Might want to take a refreshed plan that. Otherwise scanners are all about HIPAA violations.
yes the name was not given, but we know the details of the incident and just by doing some research with the details would show it is a hipaa violation, if you read the hipaa info. I know at Hershey medical center staff are not even aloud to announce a license plate number when attempting to find the owner of a car. I also know they give their patients first or last name when calling them back for procedures, doctor visits or etc.

[QUOTE who="what..."]You signal handedly violated someone's medical privacy, potentially cost someone their job, financially devastated multiple families as it will financially further devastated an already struggling hospital which will lead to more lay offs and the raising cost of health care for all of us. You have negatively effected the reputation of all nurses and a hospital etc.... with your BIG mouth! Hope you are proud of yourself and sleep well tonight.
If something ever happens to you and you need medical care I hope that you get a nurse that cares not only about your physical and mental well being but also respects your right to privacy! But then again karma is a bitch![/QUOTE]My gosh chill out anyone at Kroger knew what happened and you act like such a control freak. No one cares about your rules and regulations or your so called knowledge.

Your all wrong, this poor woman just found out Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan as his VP, and if that wasn't enough, they told her about Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" statement. Poor woman's heart couldn't handle that double whammy of insanity. I wish her a speedy recovery and good health.*Salute*

No violation at all, i enforce and investigate HIPPA violations and no violation has occured. If anything the person complaining about the violation is closer to a violation by bringing up KDMC. Careful what you preach!
It was me


#33 Aug 22, 2012
Hi everyone! I am the lady in question. I am Morgana Talbot. I went to the hospital and I am better now. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I love you all. I will gladly accept any donations you can offer. Just let me know where to meet you to pick them up. Please do no smoke because I will have my oxygen tank carted right beside me. Now stop all of this bickering on my behalf.

I am glad the "patient" is ok if the above post is legit. I know about HIPPA. First of all, no name or identifying info, no hospital, no employee name was given. I am all for privacy but don't get carried away.

If you're so convinced a violation has taken place why don't you go ahead and file a complaint? I bet they laugh in your face.


"An individual who believes that the Privacy Rule is not being upheld can file a complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR).[25][26] However, according to the Wall Street Journal, the OCR has a long backlog and ignores most complaints. "Complaints of privacy violations have been piling up at the Department of Health and Human Services. Between April of 2003 and November 2006, the agency fielded 23,886 complaints related to medical-privacy rules, but it has not yet taken any enforcement actions against hospitals, doctors, insurers or anyone else for rule violations. A spokesman for the agency says it has closed three-quarters of the complaints, typically because it found no violation or after it provided informal guidance to the parties involved.""

HIPAA's ass. HIPAA just made live harder for the doctors. Besides you really believe your health records are secure and private when minimum wage clerks deal with them daily and besides they are stored on computes which ARE NOT SECURE.

Thank you for caring so deeply about patient privacy. But, I am sure HIPAA has not been violated in this case. Now, you could get the other personel to start lowering their voices when speaking to patients. Because their loud voices DOES violate HIPAA. Thanks!

[QUOTE who="what..."]<qu oted text>Your nurse friend is held to a higher standard of ethics than our general population idiot! All health care workers sign a confidentiality agreement and HIPAA agreement to keep ALL patients information confidential and private! Do you realize that this woman's family could bring a law suit against KDMC based on your post? And you're nurse friend could be personally held liable financially and criminally? and how is a nursing trying to help by leaking someone's private medical information? Get a clue! It could have been your personal information now couldn't it? Would you feel like you were being helped or victimized? Google HIPAA!!! Educate yourself!!![/QUOTE]
