    Ok I have been drilled to never give information about a patient. Even in the military. is it a HIPPA violation to give a patient's information to a law officer/sherriff if the warrant is for a family member? the patient is also a minor. It seems each facility is different. I know in the past we usually call the legal department. but now i work in a facility that doesn't have one.

    Am a crazy to think the patient and their family should expect some kind of privacy?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    PS I looked on the HIPPA was very vague about the warrants and to me alway means if the patient is the one the law is looking for.
