If my pharmacist states the name of my medication very loudly at pickup, is that a Hippa violation?

Is it a HIPAA violation if a pharmacist says what you are taking very loud so others can hear what you are taking?

Agree!

The cashier at the pharmacy proceeded to speak loudly about the prescription. Began to make comments about what I was purchasing which had a relation to my prescription. This is not an isolated incident as she has been the cashier for my previous purchases at the pharmacy. I will be calling their store and corporate offices to provide feedback.

Just had this happen to me. After I had to give her my name and birthdate, she's like, "OKAY, I HAVE YOUR XXXXXXXXXX RIGHT HERE!" So now everyone knows what my name is, how old I am, and what meds I'm on. Super. This is what "privacy" feels like, huh?
