    Good luck to you! I hope you don't have to testify. I had to testify once when I was a security receptionist in the dorms back in college, because I witnessed a fight. It was so stressful and something I hope to never have to do again!

    As most of the other bloggers have stated, you are under no legal obligation to speak with anyone regarding patient care, unless you are directed to do so by the Hospital legal team, and even then you are wise to ask if you need to have your own counsel present. Usually the Hospitals attorney's are sufficient, unless you are being named as a specific defendant in a case, then it might behoove you to get seperate counsel. If the Hospital counsel tell you it's okay to speak with someone, I would ask them to accompany you to the meeting or refuse to go.

    It's HIPAA not HIPPA. I think the OP needs to follow the advice of many posters and NOT discuss this on a public forum.
