Importance of Privacy - An Example

You will have many opportunities to avoid disclosing protected health information. Here is one simple example:
Your best friend asks you to look up her mother's laboratory results. Knowing the HIPAA privacy regulation and your own departmental policies and procedures, you do not disclose the protected health information which she is requesting. You politely tell your friend that you are not allowed to give her the laboratory results.
