HIPPA Violation by a Pharmacy Owner/Pharmacist
I have a friend who is a pharmacist.. She intentionally called another pharmacy to get her husband...now ex...viagra scripts and dollars.. She said she needed them for taxes.. But I know better..it was for their divorce. She says that the other pharmacy screwed up.. But she owns a private pharmacy and thus knows the hipaa rules. Why does she think she is not at fault? Should I report it? Also, what could her punishment be for intentional fir her own benefit... Isn't that a felony.. Divorce is worth millions.
Answer: That sounds like a HIPPA violation. You should contact your state Board of Pharmacy. You could also ask the Board what her potential punishment could be.
