Patient discussion about legal

Q. My only daughter has ADHD,How do I know if they are doing ALL that they legally should be doing: testing? My only daughter has ADHD, visual processing disorder and has been categorized as a 504 designee. Her activeness has gone. I feel depressed when I see her sad face. So we consulted with a doctor who just referred to evals for special services too. How do I know if they are doing ALL that they legally should be doing: testing and therapy? Thanks

A. look, it's one of the most hardest things a man can go through... watching your son\daughter sick. you are helpless, they are helpless and you can't do nothing. very disturbing. and suddenly you realize that you are no longer in control of your child's life, but the doctors are.
try to relax, your daughter is in the best's of care i'm sure. so you wouldn't worry that they miss out tests or something.

Q. ex-wife works in hospital and accesses my and my familys medical records what can i/we do about this legally this is done without any consent she has computer acess to any records and accesses them upon her own

A. If you are sure of this she is breaking the law...Hippa protects patient right and this is a clear voliation of those right. I suggest you get a copy of the hospitals Right to Privacy , HIPPA paperwork. Then If you can prove this write a letter to hospital admenistration and one to her supervisor and/or director. Let them know you know this is a violation of patient rights and you want it dealt with immediatly or you will seek out legal council. They should responded to your letter in avery timely matter. If you do not have proof discuss with someone in medical record about the "need to know" bases and if ther eis no reason for her to know this information( she could be one tha thas to put it on your records) you would like to be assured she has no access to them and if she is doing a job that would give her the right ask that they please have someone else in the department handle you and your family dure to personal reasons. I encourage you to handle this in a very proffesi
