HIPAA Violations

Order Description

You are at work in a healthcare facility. You happen to notice a nurse practitioner reviewing the medical records of her ex-husband. You also know that there is no authorization on file granting additional access to this record. Should the nurse be terminated? To whom should this be reported (e.g., the husband, the state board of nursing, HHS)? What actions must the employer take? Find the applicable law and cite it. Do any exceptions to the law apply to this fact pattern? How? What additional facts might lead to a different conclusion? What would that new conclusion be? Explain.
