So I guess different states have different laws regarding notification of hiv status?

And this woman lives in a state that requires her to sign a release before submitting to an hiv test.

And she didn't give consent, and they did it anyway, and then told her she was positive.

And she's suing.

And she'll win.  If that is the law in her state. Confused
In NY she will get her money . You have to sign a stack of consent forms before just about every medical test/procedure.

Thanks for that link.  I see an exception tho:

53. May a medical provider discuss a patient's confidential HIV information with another medical provider for the purposes of continuity of care without getting a specific release from the patient? How about community based organizations?

Yes. Such medical provider to medical provider disclosure is standard practice and can be covered by a general consent to use and disclose health information for the purpose of treatment. Non-medical providerscaeley should get a specific signed release from their clients before divulging or discussing confidential HIV information with anyone.

Sooo, I will bet she already knew her status, from the surgery, was refered to a specialist, her white count was low, and he redid her test?  If I was a lawyer,  I would point out that it was for continuity of care, therefore did not require a separate release, and fell under general consent. . . but  they will usually settle out of court.

and when i said that was wrong she got all exasperated about how she had to keep repeating things and cosigned whoever said that ppl didnt understand hipaa 



seriously cokeConfused girl i got smiley faces behind most of my statements. And I was not the only one who said what I said. Yet you chose to pick my name and run with it.. this was not even the basis of the arguement though. .anywhoo... she will win her case point blank period. and I corrected myself numerous amount of times in this thread, and I can again. From my experience cna's are not allowed to research pt. info unless they are charting or something. But if I was wrong than I claim that. But u will not make me look like I am the only one who stated the same. Humph LOL

p.s I rarely take things to heart on bhm.... .and believe me this is not one of them.
