OR maybe the teacher making false accusations. I have an experience with something like this. A person's HIV+ status was revealed to his boss. He was very indignant and accused someone at the hospital of doing it. An investigation found that his mother told his aunt and his aunt told everyone she knew. It eventually got back to his boss. My original statement stands. I really don't know anything for sure.
But unlike your example with the HIV patient, there has never been any doubt about who sent the letter of complaint to this teacher's boss (we know it was the ex-husband of the nurse in question, and likely the father of the student). Now really, how could he possibly have known details about the mental health history of his son's teacher on his own?
This is probably a huge source of anxiety for a lot of people who need mental health treatment. The thought that someone with a vendetta against you would just happen to work in the office of your physician or psychologist and would access your private mental health records, then use that information to get you fired from your job... yikes. I really hope that no other patients in this practice, especially those in need of mental health care, are now hesistant to come in for treatment out of fear that their own private records aren't safe.
