HIPAA Health Information Portability & Accountability ActI think some of stuff that was blacked out was based on HIPPA Laws (do I have that right?). NurseBee or NurseLady might be able to better address that concern.
Hahaha. Good ole' Nancy. Always riding on WSers coat tails. :laugh:
ETA: I REALLY wish reporters would quit saying Paul is SB's son, considering she is the main suspect in his disappearance, was convicted of abusing his sister, and is NOT his mother.
Quoting my own post here because on further thought, the mention of the mother having ADHD and Bi-Polar Disorder, in a publicly released report would also be a violation of Federal HIPAA laws. I know nothing about the laws reguarding these types of reports, as other posters do. But I have to agree with them that it's boggling this report has been publicly released.
I keep thinking she did that all the time, and perhaps the parents got used to it? For that matter, do we know for certain that this is the first time she's taken Shannon?Could something have happened by accident and the parents panicked maybe? I don't see how anyone can come into a home in the middle of the night and nobody hear anything. Of course we know it does happen, Jessica L. and they had a dog, Haliegh C. and Coral Rose F. I hear the slightest things at night and my dog certainly let us know of any sounds we don't hear. Just sad and very strange. I hope the baby is ok.
Technically the only way that report from DCF could be released was if the parent released it, or the child is not alive. Dear God I hope not. The confidentiality laws in Florida are very strict. They may be trying to get a warrant to search
SB's home/property. IMO
Is it possible that baby Shannon's parents were unknowingly drugged the night before she disappeared, making them sleep very deeply so the perp could act without awakening them??
If you have some sort of an antenna, and know the call numbers you should be able to pick chipley so, po and so, as well as other odd places. carry the scanner outside lol.
I just gave my scanner away a few weeks ago, I dont know anyone or anything here so I gave it away. [email protected]@
I dont think you can pick up the state patrol, I think they are using a new type of radio now.
what is a feed?
I am talking about scanner that you can hear them talking back and forth. new numbers have been out so you might need to write them down as they call them out, and look them up later. I dont remember any of them any more.
It would not be a violation if it was just an allegation by whoever was trying to report neglect and abuse, etc. From what I read in that report, it was just allegations..not actual diagnoses by a doctor.
Well, the report actually says that the mother informed them that she has those conditions. You might be correct and this may be a gray area with HIPAA. But I am not a Dr. nor do I work for an insurance company. I have simply worked with a collection company that focuses on HealthCare for 5 years.
My understanding is that even though I have nothing to do with the actual Dr's, hospitals, or care of these PT's, it would be a violation of HIPAA laws for me to even go home and tell my fiance that Joe Smith went in to be tested for Diabetes. Whether he was diagnosed with the condition or not.
