Hell, even non-criminal patients aren't given this privacy-news reports include things like the number of people with whooping cough or other contagious diseases every year.

This administration does more to protect criminals than they do law abiding American citizens.
I'm not saying they can't report it, as I said there is a process to report it, just not run to the media as the article stated. As a healthcare worker we sign all sorts of things just to work, the employee's at that facility needed to report it first up the chain of command, then to the health department if they feel there is an epidemic brewing.

It sounds like they did report it as they were very concerned but their concerns were brushed off. It sounds like going to the media was a last resort. In no way does their action violate HIPAA laws.

It's Obama's America, and it's become a very strange place to live. No wonder Democrats miss Bill Clinton so much. Libs turn themselves inside out to defend this reckless president and who the hell knows where we're going to end up.

Scary stuff, this is one of many reasons countries have borders. I don't see this as a HIPAA issue if no one is identified personally. You can't arrest nurses and other staff members for a HIPAA violation anyway. Maybe the physicians can be arrested, if they actually disclose personal information and depending on the circumstances.

This is not a HIPAA issue. These people are telling the press about the conditions in these "refugee camps" as some politicians want us to think this is a huge humanitarian effort now.

The government is covering up a huge mess of a problem.
And it's starting to look like it's been building for a while.

Companies that the government contract to that take care of these illegals are being reported by the press showing in the last 2 years they have doubled their revenue.

Two years ago was when stealth amnesty got passed by the pen.
And it just got renewed for another 2 years.

Word got down to these countries that no one will get detained, no one will get deported.
One can get a work permit and stay here and work for 2 years and now can continue to stay for another 2 years.

The majority of these people are illiterate. They cannot read. Only 32% of Hondurans have made it to 6th grade people.
They got "word of mouth" news. Entire villages are leaving to make the trek here now.
And if it weren't for the non-MSM news none of us would know much about any of this because the big boyz in the MSM aren't telling us much.

If ever we needed proof that amnesty and rewarding illegal aliens for coming here is what encourages more illegal immigration this is it!! If Obama truly cares about our own citizens he should call a public press conference and state that there will be no more talk of amnesty from this day forward.

This goes way beyond an "immigration" issue. Its an attack on the free speech rights of American citizens.

While in theory HIPAA is for the most part a good thing, however I think it needs to be re-evaluated especially about those with mental health issues that could harm others.
I thought so to.

Then the FBI took my medical records......along with all of the other patients in the same office.

They still have them.
