I do have a real questions regarding HIPAA.
I took part in the care of a patient who has had a pretty big impact on the cystic fibrosis community. He has recently passed away. He was very talented writer and editor and had an amazing story to tell which he has shared online and even wrote an article for a popluar woman's magazine.
He had so much to share with everyone. I would love to share some of his stuff with some people I know who have children with congential diseases, and one with CF.
Am I violating HIPAA if I do so? If they know the name of a patient I took care of?
It's a shame when I see an article written by him that I would love to share, that I am scared of violating laws. My friends are smart enough to figure out I took care of him. But perhaps if I just don't say the words.....
I just believe his legacy and his writing could benefit so many people if shared.
