I have a friend, who just found out that her 16 year old daughter is pregnant. The concern is the parents found out from the family physician. The pregnant teen went to the family physician by herself. The doctor then called the parents and told them to come to the office. While at the doctors office the doctor told the parents that their daughter was pregnant. The teen was not in the room when the parents were told nor did she ask for her parents to be contacted. As a new Cardiac nurse, I was wondering if this was common practice or a HIPPA violation. I am just curious, my friend did not ask.
