HIPAA Violation?

Nurses HIPAA


I'm not a nurse, I'm a care coordinator and I usually talk to pts otp and ask them questions ab their health. I wasn't sure if this was a violation of HIPAA but this pt hasn't been able to get a BP monitor yet and doesn't have the money for one. Would I violate HIPAA if I buy him one?

HIPAA most likely no, your employer's policy possibly.
