I have a HIPAA question that I can't seem to find an answer for so maybe you all can help. I have a student who's mother shared a medical diagnosis on social media. The incident had happened at school that day so several of us were aware of the potential and probable diagnosis. We are in the middle of state testing. I had several people screenshot and send me the mother's post which I then discussed with our testing coordinator, 504 coordinator and principal. We did an emergency 504 to put accomadations in place for the student for testing. Mother is now saying it was a HIPAA violation. I think she is wrong since she shared pubically, not us, and it was only discussed with those staff members who needed to know. Also, this was not discussed until after the MD note had been submitted to the office.
Opinions? I can not find any information online about this scenario at all
