Pharmacy Phone Messages / HIPAA Violations? Please Advise

Potential HIPAA Violation? "Your RX is Ready"?
I have been in Pharmacy for 20 years, I have co-workers and RPHs that make and leave phone message like your Rx's are ready for pick-up on an answering machine or to another person, not the patient.
I have never done this, but is this not a violation of HIPPA law?
Could you please suggest a site or send me information about just Pharmacies and HIPPA laws?
I just think some RPHs and techs are stepping over some boundaries and I would like to educate others as well as myself if any HIPPA laws are being violated. Thank You,
