First of all, I pray this is not true. Second of all, I agree that it was mean and uncalled for to post this topic on here. No good can come of this being discussed and can only cause harm to the young person that has already been victimized here. Now you have alerted the public that this might be going on and if someone happens to ask the right questions around town this little girl's name could be leaked further ruining her future. I am sure the people with proper authority are looking into this and it will be dealt with as it should be. Go to church and light a candle or something if you are so concerned for this little girl's well being.

To those of you condemning "concerned", you did not just magically arrive at this thread. You made a conscious decision to click on the topic and read it's contents.

If you wish to point fingers, remember there's always more pointing back at you. Shame on her for posting a thread like this because of your belief that it's immoral? Then shame on you for your immoral desire to read about it.

As far as breaking laws, HIPAA only regulates cases where there is personally identifiable information. In this case, that would only include the fact that is a female 9 years of age. I'm guessing that would narrow it down to a few thousand people in the area. I don't think HIPAA applies.

Or do you people just have the habit of throwing out random information, hoping that people are dumb enough to believe what you write?

So, based on the FACTS, I don't believe this girl can be identified solely based on the fact that she is 9.

As a final point, this is TOPIX, not CNN. Nobody forced you to read this gossip forum, and nobody ever claimed it to be moral.

It's kind of like getting mad at advertisers for placing ads on porn magazines... How would you even know about it unless you have opened one up.

I don't know if this rumor is true it not, nor do I care, but for those of you who don't believe a female of the age of 9 can't get pregnant, you are wrong! If a female, any female, can or who's body is mature enough to menstruate, she CAN get pregnant. Bottom line! It would not be optimal at the very young age of 9, but is she menstruates, pregnancy is possible.

Maybe you should go back and read the original post because the " personal info" that was given out beyond her age was the name of the alleged hospital. I'd say that narrows things down even more and if someone on here was a local reporter ( they do browse this site often) it wouldn't be hard to start pumping people for questions at that hospital. Pretty confident in about a day, the name of the alleged child would be revealed.

You rebuff your own testimony, my friend.

The fact that someone would have to do more digging and "pump people" for info only buttresses my point. By the way, a hospital name isn't personal info.

I will humor you though, let's say that you are absolutely right about what you post. Once again, I like to defer to FACTS. My claim that "concerned" has broken no laws still stands true. Again, from the Dept. of Health and Human Services...

Health Care Clearinghouses—entities that process nonstandard health information they receive from another entity into a standard (i.e., standard electronic format or data content), or vice versa.
Unless I misunderstand HIPAA regulations, I don't really see "friend of a doctor" listed anywhere.

I absolutely love your comments/quotes. However your picture bothers me. Do you not believe in God? Believe me I don't care either way. God gives you a choice to believe what you want & so does freedom of speech. Just think find it odd that someone with that kind of out look on life would NOT believe.

Ahh... the dreaded avatar.

At least you didn't label me a Devil Worshipper ;p.

To answer your question, I do not know whether there is a "God" or not. I do not pretend I do either. Truth is... nobody knows, yet we wage wars over this issue.

I grew up Southern Baptists, and believed everything that was pounded in my skull since the age of 4. As I grew older and certain events took place, the pillars of sand crumbled. What was left was disdain and apathy.(maybe those two adjectives don't mesh well.)

I have come to the conclusion that if I am wrong, I still have lived a good life, and my contributions will leave a lasting effect on those lives whom I have touched. If I am right, I still have lived a good life, and my contributions will leave a lasting effect on those whom lives I have touched.

Either way, at this point in my life, I refuse to worship a deity that is so apathetic to the plight and ordeals of man that he sits idly by like an "absentee landlord".(gotta love that movie).

Was she assulted ...someone asked. Its sad someone even has to ask that question. The age of consent is 17. So at 9 yes...it is considered sexual abuse.

Well, well, well Isn't this amazing. You and your nurse friend apparently have talked about the 9 year old, but yet you say "Please don't talk about her". I guess the laws don't pertain to some people, including the Doctor and now the nurse who apparently sounds like are talking to friends about this situation. Where are the privacy laws? It's just sad to know that a Doctor, and nurse cannot respect the person/family enough to keep their mouth closed. Gee, how professional is this?
